assessing the PoM-1 course. Assessment data from student evaluations
was provided. The information was critiqued and summarized. Hard copies
of the PoM-1 report were distributed to the committee. Recommendations
and proposals for the 2001-2002 course were discussed. Following
further deliberation the committee will communicate a response to the
course director to continue the dialogue.
