General Education Assessment

The General Education Review Board has designed a comprehensive assessment plan that includes both internal and external measures. The primary means of assessing the General Education skills are:

  • Common Graded Assignments (CGA): Discipline teams known as GREATs (General Assessment Teams) design assignments to be graded according to an accompanying rubric. Papers are randomly selected from designated courses and are graded by trained scorers at the end of each semester.
  • The Proficiency Profile (formerly MAPP): is a standardized assessment instrument created by the College Board and the Educational Testing Service. While the PP does not provide feedback on all of the General Education criteria, it does provide some feedback that can be used to create baseline data regarding how CCBC students perform.
