Higher education has become an increasingly fluid environment. Many college students in the United States attend more than one institution in pursuing their degrees. This high level of fluidity poses challenges for meaningful assessment. The challenge can be especially daunting for general education assessment, when students complete course work (mostly in general education) at 2-year institutions and then move on to complete degree requirements at 4-year institutions. Such is the case for Franklin University, where a large percentage of students transfer in their general education requirements. This presentation will share the lessons that Franklin has learned in conducting general education assessment and using findings to help improve teaching and learning throughout the university. Participants will have opportunities to join in the discussion about challenges and solutions in general education assessment. Particular emphasis will be placed upon conducting assessment not just to generate data to meet compliance requirements, but more importantly, to promote teaching and learning improvement.
