CLASS Assessment

College of Letters, Arts, and Social Science Assessment Explained

Assessment helps us to determine how well learning outcomes at the course (SLOs), program (PLOs), and University (ILOs) level are being reached. The data is then used to inform curricular and pedagogical changes. Curriculum maps indicate the courses in which students are introduced to, develop, and master the PLO's and how those relate to the ILO's. The five-year plans explain the cycle proposed for assessing each PLO and the methodology to be used. Departments complete annual reports on the assessment results for that academic year and plans moving forward based on those results. Five year reports are posted on the Committee for Academic Planning and Review (CAPR) site. 

The CLASS Programs receiving external accreditation are listed here
