A Kaleidoscope of Perspectives on Student Learning Goals – STEM & Beyond?
This session examined contemporary goals for assessing student learning in STEM disciplines using a variety of tools, from analysis of NSSE data to AAC&U’s VALUE Project rubrics. A panel outlined the key issues, setting the stage for an at-the-table discussion that further explores the kaleidoscopic perspectives presented for setting student learning goals in STEM fields and designing, implementing and assessing programs that serve those learning goals.
