Institutional Learning Outcomes
These are the learning outcomes which will be assessed across the undergraduate curriculum. In preparation for instituting these value-added learning outcomes in fall 2014, the coordinators of General and Liberal Education will form six learning communities in fall 2013, charged with the task of developing curricular and co-curricular pathways and assessments for them. Their work will be processed by the Curriculum Committee in spring 2014 (NEASC Fifth-Year Interim Report, pg. 21).”

Use the highest score received in each category, even if the highest scores come from two different testing dates.
For example, Jane Student has two sets of scores:
You would advise based on an Essay score of 7and a Math score of 450.
