This section of the Assessment Guidebook applies the general steps of academic assessment to the specific task of academic program assessment. Academic program refers here to a major, minor, concentration, or a cross-cutting program such as First Year Seminar. The overall purpose of program assessment is to measure the extent to which students are meeting the program standards (for accreditation, licensure, etc.) and/or program-level intended learning outcomes.
- Step 1: Define Intended Learning Outcomes of the Academic Program
- Step 2: Assess the Academic Program's Intended Learning Outcomes
- Step 3: Review and Discuss the Results of the Assessment
