Any student who declares a major in French, German or Spanish must participate in the portfolio assessment program as a requirement for graduation. This assessment program has been adopted in response to:

  1. A state mandate that the department regularly evaluate the academic progress of its foreign language majors;

  2. A national awareness regarding accountability in higher education;

  3. The need to assess the effectiveness of our teaching.

Students ready to prepare the portfolio must enroll in WLL 400 (World Languages Program Assessment) that semester.
