Measuring College Learning in Sociology: Continuing the Conversation

November 7th 2014

On November 7, 2014 the SSRC’s Measuring College Learning in Sociology panel, a group of eleven faculty members from across the country, convened for the second time to discuss teaching, learning, and assessment in sociology. A portion of the meeting was dedicated to reviewing a draft of the Measuring College Learning in Sociology white paper, which will be published in early 2016. The group also discussed the various ways in which sociological learning might be assessed at the classroom and program level, evaluating the benefits and tradeoffs of each method.
