Signature Assignment Information for Students

Signature Assignment Information for Students

  • Each Gen Ed course covers two of the six University-wide student learning outcomes in the context of work on (inter)disciplinary subject matter. 
  • Students complete and submit to instructors, for a grade and for program assessment purposes, end-of-semester “signature assignments” that demonstrate their achievement of the two University-wide learning outcomes covered in their Gen Ed courses. 
  • For information on the outcomes covered and assessed in your course, please view Gen Ed Courses with Tier, Mode, Area A-F, and Course Descriptions which is located near the top of the Gen Ed web page: www.njcu.edu/gened
  • The specific dimensions for each outcome may be viewed here. These are the skills that students develop throughout the semester and demonstrate on their signature assignments. 
  • Starting in Fall 2017, students in Gen Ed courses will no longer submit end-of-semester signature assignments to Tk20. Instead, students will submit their signature assignments to instructors only. 
  • In addition, instructors will assess their own students’ signature assignments. The assessment team will no longer receive or score end-of-semester signature assignments. 
  • This change creates a simplified assessment process that prioritizes the essential role of faculty in supporting student success through involvement in programmatic assessment of student learning.
