New academic program proposals include a program level outcomes assessment plan (PLOAP) developed in consultation with program faculty and the Office of Educational Effectiveness Assessment (EEA).
Program level outcomes assessment plans articulate program goals and associated student learning outcomes. Each program level outcome includes a:
- Data source and assessment method/measure to be used
- Student achievement level (benchmark)
- Schedule for data collection and
- Plan for reviewing, disseminating and acting upon results to inform, program improvement
PLOAPs summarize how programs will organize, collect and analyze student achievement results to inform program improvement.
Program Assessment Plans must be signed off on by the Director to include with the new program proposal prior to the submission.
