Example:
Effective Communication ISLOs
• 
• 
• 
• 
• 
Apply oral communication skills in order to
maintain relationships, articulate
perspectives, and solve problems within
interpersonal, small group, and public
context.
Apply listening skills in order to understand,
analyze, and evaluate messages and to
empathize with and support others.
Read critically and analytically, identifying
central arguments and lines of reasoning in a
number of different kinds of texts.
Demonstrate autonomy as written by making
effective rhetorical choices regarding point
of view, tone, and voice in relation to
audience and purpose.
Use logical, ethical, and emotional appeals,
avoiding logical fallacies in thought and
language and utilizing a variety of rhetorical
strategies.
The "old college try" at assessment
›  Workshops
to analyze course-level data through the
GE/ISLO lens
›  Survey of students participating in one-book, onecampus project
›  Faculty Inquiry Group (FIG) to assess a GE/ISLO
across multiple sections
›  Survey of graduating students
Goal of our DQP project
By using the DQP and associated resources
we hope to:
1.  collaboratively reassess our GE/ISLOs
and refine them by identifying general
education core competencies; and
2.  develop an effective method(s) for
assessing those competencies across all
of our programs and GE areas.
