General Education

The General Education Assessment Wheel provides evidence of PLNU’s assessment process for the general education program and courses.  In recent years, PLNU has focused on shifts in higher education toward national benchmarking and assessment standards and the benefits of moving toward nationally normed tools and assessment strategies.

The documentation in the GE Assessment Wheel includes the General Education Learning Outcomes, identifies assessment methods, provides over ten years of GE assessment data and analysis, and a history of the use of GE assessment used in program improvement.  The University’s assessment philosophy of continuously assessing and improving the academic programs means that the faculty, students, and staff will work together to add value and enhance the student’s academic experience to achieve his or her educational outcomes.
