Learning Goals and Assessment Plans

Learning GoalAssessment
Solve equations and manipulate expressions with
trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, polynomial
and rational functions.
When the class is being assessed, the final exams
will include embedded questions to assess student
performance on these topic-specific learning
goals. Instructors will tally their students'
scores on these questions, and will forward this
data to the chair of the department pre-major
curriculum committee
Compute by hand limits, derivatives and integrals
of simple combinations of algebraic and
transcendental functions
Understand the geometric meaning of derivatives
and anti-derivatives
Solve applied optimization problems.same

When assessment activities are done, the results will be summarized in memorandum form and filed with the department chairperson for record keeping

Information obtained from assessment will be used to assess and self-reflect on the success of the course and to make any necessary changes to
improve teaching and learning effectiveness.
