ACT Syllabi and Assessment

As a component of the QEP process on Applied Critical Thinking (ACT), faculty who complete the requisite professional development revise their syllabi to address the Elements of Thought and Universal Intellectual Standards of critical thinking, based on the Foundation for Critical Thinking model. These syllabi go through a peer review process among faculty to ensure elements and standards are effectively incorporated based on a set evaluation rubric. An endorsed ACT course syllabus follows a format that clearly describes to the reader how ACT will be used in delivering course content to develop students’ abilities in analyzing and evaluating information. The review process is detailed below.
