Summary of Academic Program Assessment
The Office of Planning and Assessment requests that each
academic program complete a Summary of
Program Assessment form. On
this form, each program lists primary learning outcomes goals for students, when
and how those goals are to be monitored, expectations for performance,
observations of actual student performance, and program follow-up or changes
that may be necessary.
Dr. Douglas Eder of Southern Illinois University at
Edwardsville recommended the Summary of Program Assessment form as a means of
reporting how well departments were implementing learning outcomes assessment
plans. The LHUP Outcomes Assessment
Committee, comprised of representatives from each department, endorsed the use
of the form as an easy and concise way in which to track and report progress.
The information gathered from the summary form can assist departments in
the Five-Year Program Review process, serve as a way to communicate progress,
and facilitate external reporting requirements.
