2. What should be included in the department’s list of educational objectives?
The list of educational objectives for each academic program in the department should include knowledge, skills, and attitudes specific to the major plus, at a minimum, the three core University Studies objectives: locating and gathering information, written and oral expression, and critical thinking and reasoning. While the list of educational objectives should be comprehensive and detailed, it should still be feasible to assess every stated objective. Formulate each objective so that there is a credible connection between the objective and the method of assessing it.
