  • Three Linked Tools for Intentionality Competencies: categories of knowledge and learning within a discipline that are ratcheted up according to degree level Adapted from MHEC Tuning workgroup for Psychology Psychological Research Students should be knowledgeable about and skilled in using the research methodologies basic to psychology
  • Slide 9
  • Three Linked Tools for Intentionality Competencies: categories of knowledge and learning within a discipline that are ratcheted up according to degree level Adapted from the American Historical Association Tuning project Exercising Historical Skepticism Develop a disciplined, skeptical stance and outlook on the world that demands evidence and sophisticated use of information. Working with Historical Sources Read and historically contextualize with care and precision a variety of sources that provide evidence to support an argument about the past and to understand the complex nature of the historical record. Using History Methodologies Develop a methodological practice of gathering, sifting, analyzing, ordering, synthesizing, and interpreting evidence from multiple historical and theoretical viewpoints that provide perspective on the past. Producing Historical Arguments Demonstrate expertise in historical argument, including the development of significant, open-ended questions about the past and the writing of an effective narrative that describes and analyzes the past for its use in the present. Practicing the Ethics of Historical Study Understand that the ethics and practice of history means recognizing and building on other scholars work, peer review, and citation. Applying Historical Thinking Value the study of the past for its contribution to life-long learning and effective habits of mind that lead to civic engagement.

  • Differentiating Outcome Types Program Level Outcomes: Broadly inclusive statements that might be considered areas of competency within a given discipline or general areas of competency within a GE program Upon completion of the bachelors degree, Psychology students will: Utilize higher order thinking in applying basic research methods in psychology including research design, data analysis, and interpretation of findings, and, reporting of results both in written and oral forms that are in conformance with APA format.
  • Slide 18
  • Differentiating Outcome Types Student Learning Outcomes: Specific statements that identify student responses to learning experiences and thereby indicate what learning looks like within a discrete area of a program Upon completion of the bachelors degree, Psychology students will: Identify basic research methods and ethical considerations in the study of behavior. Analyze the results of two different kinds of personality tests and birth order for college age adults especially introversions versus extraversion.
