Abstract:The Food Science and Human Nutrition (FSHN) Undergraduate program has established an ad-hoc committee to assess written communication skills across required food science courses. Involved faculty identified core writing-intensive food science courses within the FSHN curriculum that involve laboratory assignments and written laboratory reports. A rubric for assessing written laboratory and term project reports was selected as a common or shared rubric for instructors to use across their classes (Food Engineering, Food Microbiology, Food Chemistry, and Experimental Foods). The faculty hope to use these findings to make improvements in written communication skills across the program and hope to apply similar strategies in the future to identify strengths and weaknesses in other key competency areas across the FSHN undergraduate program.
