Laboratory Component Courses (one course)

A Laboratory Component course must include at least 25 percent evaluation and assessment of student performance directly from activities and experiences that fulfill the Laboratory Component educational goals.  A Laboratory Component course may be a course in the student's major field of study or may be a General Education menu course.  Students should consult with their academic adviser or department chair to determine whether any required courses for their major fulfill this component.

  • effectively communicate results of a set of applied experiments or observations; and
  • assess differences between theory and experimental results during evaluation of experimental design.
