Through previous year's assessment activities, we noticed that analytic skills and critical thinking are the areas for improvement. In our curriculum map, most of our upper division core courses introduce and reinforce the student learning objectives in regards to critical and creative thinking. Course syllabi for these courses were reviewed by undergraduate curriculum committee members and made a recommendation to one course to cover one more tool that students can use to analyze numeric data.
The coming year of 2013-2014, TIM school will focus more on improving our curriculum to strengthen students' analytic and critical thinking before we engage in another round of assessment.
