Assessment Results

General Education Scorecard

The assessment of RIT’s General Education Student Learning Outcomes includes communicating assessment results and how we use results to improve processes, instruments, curriculum, instruction, and ultimately student learning. A variety of reporting methods are used, including an at-a-glance scorecard, reports by learning outcome, presentations, and summary reports.
