Continuous Improvement

  • Do you have an appropriate (direct and indirect measures), systematically utilized, regular outcomes assessment process to measure the extent to which your graduates have achieved the outcomes by the time they graduate?
  • Utilizing rubrics can be great ways to ensure that you are separating specific parts of student work related to outcomes. For example, those outcomes that require that students have the ability to design something with “consideration of” x, y, z, … can be handled by giving a part of the grade to the quality of that consideration as a check list.
  • Do you have minutes of faculty meetings or retreats where you explicitly discuss the results of the outcomes assessment process as input to the continuous improvement of your program?
