Assessment can be particularly challenging in programs that do not share a common body of knowledge or methodology, as is the case in many individualized major and liberal and general studies programs. In programs where students’ foci range widely, learning outcomes are best defined broadly. Assessment may seek to measure proficiency in areas such as inquiry and analysis, written and oral communication, problem-solving, and integrative learning. The AACU’s VALUE Rubrics may be a useful starting point for identifying such broadly applicable learning outcomes. A common curriculum, such as an introductory course and a capstone experience may facilitate the collection of comparable data across a sample of students.
