Monday, January 13th 2014
Start Time:
9:45 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
Computer Classroom 173 Morgan Library
Description:
To assure the quality degree programs, student learning-outcome (SLO) goals must be clearly articulated and then, for each SLO, metrics must be selected and evidence collected to demonstrate how well graduates attain each SLO. This on-going process of assessment is the foundation for continuous quality improvement and demonstration of program quality. The Planning module of Compliance Assist has been selected to replace PRISM as the campus-wide tool for documenting outcomes assessment. In a hands-on computer lab, participants will be able to log into the new system and begin learning how to use it. Discussion will focus on developing SLO goals, assessment plans (who, when, how and where data is collected), and analysis for incorporation of the evidence into academic department program reviews.
Goals and Target Audience:
Department Heads, Academic program assessment coordinators, and faculty members.
