Changes to K-State 8 guidelines
In June, K-State's Faculty Senate unanimously approved new guidelines for classes with K-State 8 course tags. These changes did not change the tags of any existing K-State courses. Furthermore, the eight categories and descriptions remain the same.
Briefly, the new guidelines require that a course that has a K-State 8 tag must have the equivalent of at least one credit hour of both content and grading that represent the student learning outcome as defined by the K-State 8 area. The policy also describes the review and appeal process for classes tagged with K-State tags. This policy replaces the existing K-State 8 policy.
Moving forward, faculty should incorporate these new requirements into any K-State 8 tagged class that they teach. Furthermore, any new proposed courses or changes to existing courses involving K-State 8 tags will be evaluated based upon these new guidelines. View the complete policy.
