Grant Summary

$25,000 over 12 months. Originally proposed by the Center for Assessment of Higher Education at the University of Maryland, College Park (CAHE) and now housed at Northwestern University, this planning grant explores disciplinary-based assessment of undergraduate cognitive outcomes. Classical Studies will serve as the case study for this investigation. Headed by Rachelle L. Brooks of Northwestern, this project will produce: (1) a report on the Classical Studies Outcomes Indicators meeting; (2) an assessment instrument for measuring undergraduate cognitive outcomes; (3) a set of methodological recommendations for instrument administration; and (4) a report summarizing the methodological review.
