FACULTY PARTICIPATION AND OWNERSHIP OF ASSESSMENT
Wittenberg faculty recognizes assessment as an ongoing process and regard this plan as among the first steps toward imbedding assessment within our academic culture. Faculty members have been involved in the development of this program as participants in planning departmental and interdisciplinary program learning goals and assessment activities. More than half the faculty also have been involved as designers of general education courses. Several dozen served on EPC general education course review panels and an equal number attended learning goal assessment forums convened by the ad hoc committee on assessment. Lastly, faculty were involved in their corporate governance capacity approving the creation of a permanent committee on assessment, and approving in principle the creation of this plan. The faculty committee responsible for preparing the plan included persons from a range of disciplines including: biology, education, German language and literature, management, music, physics and political science. A more complete record of faculty involvement in the development of our assessment plan is presented in Appendix 2.
