General Education Assessment

In continuing efforts to assess student learning at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, the UT General Education Committee developed a set if rubrics and practices to assist faculty teaching general education courses to determine whether or not general education outcomes are being met.

For guidance on using the rubrics or developing specific rubrics for your course(s), consult with the Tennessee Teaching and Learning Center.

The file Assessment Process for Courses in General Education (PDF, produced in landscape mode, approved by the General education Committee on March 8, 2017) contains

  • the complete assessment process and rubrics,
  • instructions for accessing the online assessment management system, and
  • instructions for entering your assessment plan and report.
