6. How do students use it?


Students use the DDP to analyze their academic development, making connections among learning experiences in terms of college-wide abilities and departmental outcomes. These connections may reach across the disciplines, in and beyond the classroom, and over the course of a program or major.Specifically, a student can use the DDP to do the following:

  • - Submit a self assessment of a key performance to an instructor or assessor
  • - Attach work samples (text, video, or other digital files) to a key performance
  • - Review feedback on a key performance
  • - Search for and analyze patterns in past key performances, both through independent reflection and formal "integrating moments" embedded in the curriculum
  • - Build an individualized map of the student's progress and plan for their future, whether in terms of area of study, co-curricular accomplishments, or personal and professional goals
