What is the

Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)?

What to Expect as a Student

As a means of assessing theQEP, LCU will measure the following three learning outcomes. All LCU students will demonstrate:

  • Comprehension of the components of critical thinking and its processes.

  • Application of critical thinking in writing.

  • The ability to evaluate critical thinking in written expression.

  • This PowerPoint was designed from Dr. Rod Blackwood’s outline for communicating the QEP to LCU students. For departments like Organizational Management there are online courses and our students need to be aware of the QEP in a virtual setting.
