Course Outcomes Blueprint for Socio-Cultural Analysis

Please fill out the fields below as applicable. Items with an asterisk(*) are required.

The CCC encourages departments to align their Core assessment work with their on-going participation in degree program assessment through the Office of Academic Assessment’s ASLP’s (Assessment of Student Learning Plans).  “Recycling” is encouraged in the form of avoiding duplication of effort and/or reporting.  Departments may import information from their ASLP’s to this blueprint, and vice-versa.

Please see the Core Curriculum Committee page (opens in new window) for additional information on completing these forms.

Completion of this form involves aligning your department's outcomes for this course with the Core outcomes.
