City Tech’s Office of Assessment and Institutional Research worked to integrate comprehensive outcomes assessment into the General Education curriculum, with impressive results: almost 400 full-time and part-time faculty have participated in professional development; critical course assessment is at 100% compliance for all departments; and outcomes have been assessed for thousands of students in core competencies such as information literacy, oral communication, reading, and writing. Comprehensive outcomes assessment has been institutionalized through the college’s Assessment Committee as part of a continuous cycle of data collection, analysis, and improvement, and the Living Lab Gen Ed Seminar now aligns with the improvement phase of the cycle.
