Percentage of Humanities Departments That Conduct an Undergraduate Learning Outcomes Assessment,* by Scope of Assessment and Carnegie Classification, Fall 2012

* An aggregate evaluation involving the measurement of the learning outcomes of a given cohort of students in an attempt to gauge the effectiveness of a program. The bars for each discipline will not necessarily sum to 100%, because departments could indicate they had conducted assessments based on more than one group of students. See disciplinary tables for specific totals.
