During the Spring 2019 General Education Assemblies for Learning Outcomes, faculty groups began to develop learning outcomes for the Advanced Composition Requirement. Then, smaller Working Groups digested the information from the Assemblies and created draft learning outcomes which were then made available on this website for campus comments. The comments were taken into consideration by both the General Education Board and the Council for Learning Outcomes Assessment, resulting in the revised draft learning outcomes for Advanced Composition listed below.
After taking a course in Advanced Composition, students will be able to:
- Compose Text: Produce a variety of written and/or multi-media compositions for specialist and/or non-specialist audiences. In the case of multimedia compositions, produce written annotations that substantively describe and analyze the multimodal work produced. (C-SLOs 1 & 2)
- Process Writing: Engage in writing and research as recursive processes, including drafting, review, revision, and reflection. (C-SLOs 1, 2, & 5)
- Research Inquiry: Locate, gather, and evaluate data, primary sources, secondary sources, and other evidence by employing discipline-specific research methods. (C-SLOs 1 & 2)
- Application: Analyze and synthesize relevant information from multiple primary and secondary sources. (C-SLOs 1 & 2)
