Writing and Oral Communication Assessment


Assessment at UAS is an effort by faculty to insure that all students have opportunities to hone their skills in the six competencies identified by faculty as being crucial to professional success. What are these competencies? They include oral and written communication skills, critical thinking skills, computer skills, information literacy, professional behavior, and quantitative analysis skills. Each department is currently working on assessment plans that best suit the needs of students working toward degrees in various departments. You should check with your advisor early in your program to learn what assessment plans are in place for your degree program.
