Humanities:

In order to measure objectives and student outcomes, students were asked to respond to the following question:

The term “myth” comes from the Greek mythos which simply means “story.”  Contrary to the common perception that myths are somehow “untrue,” for the cultures that adopt a particular mythology, these stories actually function in ways as to contain some degree of “truth.”  First, explain a function a myth could have for a culture.  Second, provide at least one example of a myth from a culture that you have studied this semester and discuss what “truth” that myth has for that particular culture.

Since each instructor teaches different material for the course, the question was broad enough for any section to respond appropriately

In the Fall of 2004, 7 sections of Hum 130 were selected for assessment.  Grading of the section was done by two instructors in the English, Reading, and Humanities Division, specifically those instructors who have taught the Hum 130 course.  When there was a discrepancy between two graders concerning whether a student passed or failed (e.g., between a 2 and a 3 = 2.5), a third grader juried the score. The rubric was as follows:
