Programs & Assessment: Program Assessment

Program Assessment

Program-Level Student Learning Outcomes Assessments are used to determine whether students are achieving the learning outcomes established by the program faculty. For assessment purposes, an academic program is defined as a sequence of study that results in student achievement of specific learning outcomes. This definition includes program sequences of several lengths including degrees, certificates, and letters of recognition. 

Each program is expected to have 3-5 program level outcomes, which reflect what a student knows or is able to do upon successful completion of a program. Each outcome should be a clear, concise, and measurable statement of student achievement, aligning learning with assessment.
