Programmatic assessment of student learning demonstrates that students have appropriate knowledge, skills, and competencies in their chosen discipline. Assessment begins with a plan that clearly states learning outcomes for the program along with how and when these outcomes will be assessed on a continuous cycle.
A curriculum map aligns these learning outcomes with required courses in the program that introduce, reinforce, and show mastery of the outcomes as a student progresses towards graduation. Taken together, all of this information provides a basis for assessment of student achievement and continuous improvement.
