Building Quantitative Literacy Across the Curriculum (AMCOA 2019)

Building Quantitative Literacy Across the Curriculum
AMCOA Annual Assessment Conference
Massachusetts Department of Higher Education
April 19, 2019 – Marlborough, Mass.

Abstract

Quantitative literacy (QL) is the skill set and habit of mind necessary to use and understand quantitative information to solve problems and critically reason within authentic contexts. As data has become ubiquitous in the technology age, QL is becoming a critical need for general education to address; a need that many traditional mathematics courses are not designed to meet. In this session, participants will explore emerging models for QL “programs” in higher education, review best practices for teaching, assessing, and supporting QL, and gauge their institution’s readiness to take next steps.
