General Education Assessment

The purpose of assessment of general education is to evaluate student achievement of institutionally recognized competencies in general education including information literacy, diversity, professionalism and ethics, written communication, and critical thinking skills. The general education assessment process does NOT evaluate an individual faculty member, course, or department.


In 1999, the Assessment Council (now AAIC) appointed a sub-committee to focus on general education assessment. The Committee for Assessment of General Education (CAGE), consists of faculty members from a variety of disciplines and colleges. CAGE is charged with developing and implementing a plan for assessing general education. CAGE has adopted a holistic approach to assessing general education with the philosophy that the effectiveness of the general education program should be demonstrated across the curriculum and not only in general education-designated courses.
