This project presents a signature assignment for Indo-Pacific culture courses to assess the students’ cultural competency by discussing food practices and beliefs. It also aims to use the student’s assignment to assess one program learning outcome. This assignment requires the students to write a 750-word essay describing their comfort foods and specific memories of events, people, and cultural practices connected with these foods, following effective writing guidelines as stated in the rubric. This project was designed to meet the recommendations of the Filipino and Philippine Culture Program’s previous assessment project conducted by Dr. Pia Arbleda and Dr. Jayson Parba in 2015 to create a signature assignment for Filipino culture courses.
