Comments
Objectives are program-specific and describe student
behaviors. Two of the undergraduate learning goals have been
adopted by the department: writing effectively and critical
thinking.
You have direct and indirect measures here, so that is good. It
does not appear that your measures are multiple but rather
singular for each objective.
Expectations have been established for the measures given.
It is good that you included numbers as well as percentages in
this column. What are the data beginning to tell you about
student learning in this program? As you continue to collect
data, you will want to include more analysis of what it tells you
and how you have used the information in Parts two and three.
The feedback loop is not completely closed. Who analyzes the
data and discusses what changes, if any, need to be made to the
program? Are there regular meetings or a faculty retreat where
such discussions could or do occur?
Levels should not be interpreted as grades or scores; they are stages of implementation based on patterns of
characteristics described by North Central Association. These levels are approximations based on the information
provided in the summaries. Please refer to the checklist for the Primary Traits listed for each level on the
assessment web site at www.eiu.edu/~assess.
