Foundational Explorations (General Education)

The Foundational Explorations (General Education) Assessment Wheel provides evidence of PLNU’s assessment process for the Foundational Explorations 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 FE Assessment Wheel includes the Foundational Explorations Learning Outcomes, identifies assessment methods and instruments, provides over ten years of FE assessment data and analysis, and a history of the use of FE 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.
