Communication and critical thinking are foundational skills for college students, which have been strongly emphasized by employers, along with other skills (Hart Research Associates, 2015). Foundational skills are often reflected in general education outcomes, which are not only taught in General Education courses but also reinforced and assessed in major area courses. Assessment of communication and critical thinking skills are conducted in both major area courses and general education courses. This poster presents findings on student performances through work products created in senior level major area courses. Performances are also compared between F2F and online sections
