Completed as far as practicable with presentation of breakout F03 and publication of Rostrum article.
Whereas, Many discussions of current curricular topics involve course-level discussions using terms such as "basic skills", "pre-collegiate", and "college-level";
Whereas, Such discussions are often hampered by the fact that understanding of these terms differs among individuals, community colleges, and systems of higher education; and
Whereas, A common understanding of such terms is necessary for productive discussion of curricular topics;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges develop definitions for commonly used terms for designating course level, such as "basic skills," "pre-collegiate basic skills," and "college-level," that can be used throughout the system; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges offer a breakout session at the Spring 2004 Plenary Session to begin exploration of the issues involved in the establishment of such definitions.
