About Academic Programs
Program outcome assessment is mission-driven as demonstrated in all program frameworks. Program curricular goals state what the programs strive to provide and accomplish within the curricula, and program level student learning outcomes (POs) identify crucial skills that program graduates should possess at the end of their academic journey at CASC. Performance indicators define the achievement of the outcomes for all stakeholders and serve as criteria to evaluate evidence of student learning. Curriculum maps are visual representations of the skill development of each outcome through program courses. Concerning the assessment process, CASC utilizes course-embedded assignments and activities as the direct measures of student learning while the maps function as formative and summative data collection points at the course level.
