» Quantitative Inquiry

Quantitative Inquiry Learning Outcome: Students use quantitative methods to help analyze problems in particular academic or social contexts; develop in-depth arguments supported by quantitative evidence; and communicate those arguments in both verbal form and quantitative displays (e.g., tables, graphs, mathematical equations, or other relevant format).

Quantitative Inquiry Evaluation Rubric

Quantitative Inquiry Assessment Process

The quantitative inquiry area was assessed in the fall 2014. The assessment of the student work samples collected resulted in the following action steps.

Action Steps Taken:

  1. A revised learning outcome statement and evaluation rubric were adopted.
  2. New outcome statement and rubric criteria will be widely distributed to faculty members teaching QI courses each semester.
  3. QI courses will be re-certified by the GE Committee in light of the new outcome statement and rubric.
  4. In the future, if needed, multiple assignments will be collected to cover the breadth of the evaluation rubric. The assessment team also requires all assignments turned in be graded and accompanied with a completed evaluation rubric.
