CLD External Assessments
AC 416 External Assessment
For this assessment, students assume the simulated roles of the Alverno Student Foundation (ASF) committee members. Drawing on the quantitative and qualitative research strategies as well as the ability to employ analysis frameworks, students critically review three program proposals and funding requests from three non-profit agencies in Milwaukee. This simulation is based on actual participating agency’s proposals. Each student completes the written portion of the assessment independently and then participates in a simulated committee meeting with other students to determine how to allocate or distribute the amount of money to one or all of the agencies. This assessment focuses on the student's ability to make judgments about programs that deal with community issues; it emphasizes financial analysis and social scientific research skills as well as critical-thinking, interaction, and communication skills.
