Program Competencies and Assessments

Competencies/Outcomes

The curriculum competencies listed are for the AAS degree. They include the general education and technical competencies/learning outcomes.

  • Program Competencies/Outcomes (2012-2013)
  • Student Learning Outcome Assessment (Assessment Plan)

    The technical programs identify three student learning outcomes each year that will be assessed. The Assessment Plan is maintained in a relational data base, "Assessment, Improvement, Measurement" (AIM). The Assessment Plan includes:

    • Identification of the outcome, usually using the program level competencies/tasks,
    • Determination of the measures that are going to be used to assess the outcome,
    • Determination of an acceptable level of achievement/target level of achievement based on industry or benchmark standards,
    • Identification of the month or semester the assessment(s) will be taking place,
    • Recording the results of the assessment(s), and
    • Strategizing how the results are going to be used to improve students success.
