Oral Communication Assessment at Capital University

  • In 2008, Capital University was accepted into the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Assessment Academy, a long-term training and mentoring program to assist Universities in improving assessment practices. The first phase of our HLC project was to create a first-year and fourth-year assessment of Oral Communication. That project has grown substantially since that original vision.

    Capital University is now committed to assessing Oral Communication at every opportunity during a student’s career at Capital. This includes the planned first and fourth year evaluations in general education courses as well as assessment within each student’s individual discipline.

    Capital’s HLC Assessment Academy project is expanding to include additional assessment areas, including critical thinking and writing.
