We aspire to educate students to see and enjoy the beauty and power of the mathematical sciences and to nurture lifelong learners who use mathematical perspectives to engage the world beyond Kenyon.
The department chair collects the data from items 1 and 2 above, and summarizes it for the department. The chair convenes a department meeting in May to discuss the results of items 1 and 2. At this same meeting faculty filling out assessment tables report on their findings and the math faculty as a whole identifies patterns in the data coming from all three items. Based on these patterns, we identify areas in need of improvement and make decisions about ways to improve student learning in the future. The chair then writes a report summarizing the findings of the math faculty, and this report is included in the annual report submitted to the associate provost's office in June.
