Do PLOs include or imply link to Core Competency? (AY 2016-2017: Oral Communication)?
Process of Core Competency Assessment:
Course (400- level)
15 minute oral presentation on results of Ecological field study in which students designed experiment, and collected and analyzed data.
Type of Student Artifact
Oral Presentation using Powerpoint
Rubric or other instrument
GE Rubric for Oral Communication
Data (measurement of the competency)
Data is comprised of scores from 3 reviewers on each of four core competencies.
Action Taken in Response to the Data (What will you do in response to the Findings?)
Overall, reviewers were very impressed with the quality of oral presentations. The scores for Delivery (competency #4) seemed lowest overall relative to the others. The Biology Department will recommend that faculty work with Students delivery more prior to future oral presentations.
