The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology annual assessment report to the College for the Office of Academic Assessment. The report details assessment through embedded questions in exams given in core classes. For each of the core classes the department has curriculum matrices that align student learning objectives with the SLOs for our program. It continues to develop these assessment matrices for the upper division courses. Finally, A fifth SLO was added to both programs to assess the ability of students to communicate scientific information. In order to assess this fifth SLO a writing assignment was assessed for a 400 level Biology course.
