Data Informed Decisions



 

We are very pleased with the progress our students showed in recognizing and articulating the core concepts in biology.  At the end of the spring semester we will have a second year of Gen-Bio MAPS data for our introductory series and our first cohort of graduating seniors for analysis.

The Department is currently involved in reforming our curriculum.  We have used the Gen-Bio MAPS data in revising the Biology emphases.  We have updated the curriculum to include computational approaches in biology, and integrated material in organismal biology and physiology and in molecular, cellular and developmental biology.   We have retained our focus on the core concepts in biology as our assessment data indicates that our students show substantial progress in our curriculum in recognizing  and articulating the core concepts in biology.
