In a November conference and interactive workshop, the Lynch School of Education and Human Development hosted scholars with backgrounds in philosophy, developmental psychology, and educational research and assessment to discuss strategies for measuring the impact of undergraduate education, especially liberal arts education, on students' personal growth. Eventually, this could lead to a measurement instrument to replace standardized testing and to a broader understanding that cultivating thinking, feeling students have a larger role to play in the world. The conference was funded by a grant from the Spencer Foundation.
