* Do not list courses, experience & artifacts controlled by external academic units, since you can only assess program outcomes controlled by your program. If your program
requires courses outside of your control, moving forward the expectation is units will share assessment findings so the needs of all the programs are addressed.
* Experiences: Non-course based activities of your students such as a performance, a clinical, internships.
* Artifacts: Student-produced products used as evidence for assessment activity.

It is possible to evaluate outcome measures by asking the three following questions. If faculty
and chairs are able to answer, “yes” to all of three questions, it is likely that a strong set of
measures has been developed.
1. Review your collogues drafted assessment measure proposed for evaluating each outcome
2. Answer the following questions to help provide peer feedback and recommendations to
improve it? Please write recommendations for improvements in the space below:
Does the measure provide sufficient data and information to analyze the learning outcome?
