Rationale for the Plan

FA 274 and FA 373 Advance Sculpture have never been assessed. PG1/PLSO 1 and PG 3/PLSO 3 were chosen since the Advance Photography classes were also assessed with PLSO 1 and PLSO 3 in Fall/Spring 2019.

FA 264 Painting I course has never been assessed before. PG1/PLSO1 and PG2/PLSO2 2 will be assessed in Spring 2020.
