Honors Medallions These forms have a dual purpose: first to encourage meaningful reflection, and second to track commitments of individual honors students. We will also use this information to measure the outcomes of the program as a whole. Reflection facilitates learning by connecting experience to cognition. We hope you take advantage of the opportunity to reflect specifically and honestly about your experience in Honors. We are looking for accurate self-appraisal as you Contribute, Expand, Develop, and Participate in a community of learners.
