Title: Exploring Student Self-Assessment in General Education: A Pilot Study Using Surveying Tools Authors: Cristo Ernesto Yáñez León, James Lipuma, Yi Meng, Jeremy Reich Conference: Congreso Internacional de Investigación Academia Journals Tláhuac 2023 Venue: Instituto Tecnológico de Tláhuac II, CDMX, México Date: September 13-14, 2023.
This research article delves into an innovative pilot study examining student self-assessment in the realm of General Education Requirements (GER) within a STEM-focused university. Employing a tailored survey based on AAC&U VALUE Rubrics and utilizing a 5-point Likert scale, the study contributes to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) accreditation review. Our findings explore the congruence between self-assessed student awareness and institutional benchmarks, shedding light on the efficacy of out-of-course pre-and post-tests. The research unveils pivotal insights into student awareness and paves the way for inter-domain dialogue in educational assessment. This study serves as a crucial step toward improving institutional effectiveness in GER and broadens the application of self-assessment mechanisms across diverse educational settings.
