This report should be viewed as an extension of the work undertaken by the Gateway Assessment Task Force (GATF) two years ago. In its final report, the GATF outlined two sets of recommendations. First, the report suggested that the Curriculum Council explore a portfolio-style assessment of student writing. The Academic Standards (AS) subcommittee has crafted a draft portfolio proposal that is currently under discussion. The second recommendation of the GATF focused on problems with staffing. Those recommendations serve as a point of departure for the more detailed proposals outlined below.
