Middle States Material

Here you will find three documents from the Middle States Commission on Higher Learning. 

"Middle States Characteristics of Excellence" is the text of the Middle States pertaining to assessment of student learning. Note that while Middle States mandates assessment, it does not "prescribe a specific approach or methodology" (p. 64). The standard sets out what Middle States means by assessment, and how it is recognized in the field. 

"MSCHE Final Tearm Report" is the final report of our visiting team. "F&M Response" is the college's response.
