Curriculum Matrix

Generally, each Student Outcome Measure will have an assignment that is reflective of the Learning Outcome. These Outcome Measures will assess how well the program is achieving Learning Outcomes and improve, if necessary. All faculty members will be active participants in the assessment process.

Key Features of Student Outcome Assessment

  1. Assignments are identified that reflect the Learning Outcome.
  2. Metric – the measure of student proficiency is defined
  3. Rubric – Evaluation of student proficiency is defined
  4. Standard – Minimally acceptable achievement of proficiency is defined

Faculty Summary

Faculty will provide an assessment summary at the end of the semester. For faculty whom teach a course twice a year, an assessment summary is required at a minimum once a year.

As noted on the assessment summary, outcomes will be expressed as the number or percentage of students who met the standard versus failed the standard. At least 80% of students should achieve the minimum standard.
