An STSC course is a science or engineering course without a lab that addresses a scientific or technologic issue of timely importance and addresses the following objectives:
Graded assignments, exams, projects, and other course work.
The instructor is the person who conducts assessment of sample group work according to a rubric that will be developed later. The results are submitted online to the STSC assessment coordinator.
STSC coordinator will compile results, examine trends, and submit findings to STSC faculty and to the Common Course of Study assessment coordinator.
The STSC coordinator will convene STSC instructors annually or biannually to discuss assessment results and recommend changes.
