Session Description:

Public interest in the cash value of a liberal arts education has prompted colleges and universities to reevaluate what we teach and what students learn. Responding to calls for accountability has been challenging for English departments, which use nonquantitative measures to assess student achievement. This roundtable will consider assessment in literature courses, emphasizing practices as well as the politics of assessment within institutions.
