Program Level Assessment

Each academic program has identified specific student learning outcomes that each graduate of that program is expected to master. These program-level student learning outcomes (PLOs) are assessed on an annual basis and also, in a more summative audit, every five years.


Each year, targeted PLOs are assessed by studying student performance in mapped courses or in various capstone experiences. In this process, the faculty members identify the PLO, determine and utilize direct and indirect source(s) of evidence that best serve to indicate student mastery, and then make decisions based upon findings.

Also on an annual basis, faculty members in each academic program complete the Quality and Visibility Indicators (QVI) Report, which gathers evidence of the program’s quality and viability.  

QVI Guidelines

Every 5 Years

Each academic program undergoes a Program Review every five years. This cumulative 5-year audit, produced in collaboration between faculty and the Office of Assessment and Evaluation, addresses quality and viability indicators as well as consideration and analysis of PLO assessment findings.
