Percentage of Humanities Departments That Conduct an Undergraduate Learning Outcomes Assessment,* by Scope of Assessment and Discipline, 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 also indicate they had conducted assessments of some other group of students. See disciplinary tables for specific totals.

** A combined department is one that grants degrees in English and also in languages and literatures other than English.
