Beginning in 2006, a task force began working to more clearly define a common set of qualities that all undergraduate students should develop regardless of their program of study. These general education outcome areas have become known as the “Four Cs” and are listed below.
These four outcome areas are developed across courses and experiences located in degree core requirements, academic majors, and co-curricular activities. The General Education Assessment Committee serves (1) to define the college-level competencies expected of all Baylor graduates; and (2) to assess the extent to which graduates have attained these competencies.

Below are some useful resources to help units across the institution measure their students’ development of these competencies. The resulting data can then be used to inform decisions and actions that seek improvement in student learning and development.
