TAMU System Student Learning Outcome–Integration of Broad Knowledge

Bold statement:

The Texas A&M University System delivers a common set/embraces a common view of important outcomes and is accountable for sustained measurement.

Institutional Effectiveness:

For all TAMU System universities, the rationale for assessing student learning outcomes (SLOs) originates primarily from efforts to maintain institutional effectiveness, which is defined as a process of identifying outcomes, assessing the extent to which they are achieved, and providing evidence of improvement based on their analysis.

Integration of Broad Knowledge Outcome:

Upon completion of their degree program, students will be able to synthesize knowledge from general and specialized studies.

Generic Descriptions of Campus Assessment Results:

EXEMPLARY
All criteria met and results exceed expectations with little room for improvement.

PROFICIENT
Most criteria met and results indicate mastery of objective with some room for improvement.

SUFFICIENT
Acceptable number of criteria met and results meet expectations with room for improvement.

EMERGING
Some criteria met and results indicate need for improvement.

INSUFFICIENT
Few criteria met; results indicate need for significant improvement or no/insufficient results reported to measure performance of objective.

UNIVERSITY

TAMUT

ASSESSMENT METHOD

Multiple assessment measures are used: internship portfolios, capstone assignments, and student teacher evaluations.

RESULTS: 2014

Sufficient. Results were mixed with some departments reporting student achievement nearing the goals set by the program and other departments reporting students met or exceeded the goals.

ANALYSIS

In two programs with low results, small numbers of students in the assessment cycle contributed to missing the target goal. Two other programs reported marked increases in results, primarily due to curricular changes made in previous years.

ACTION

Programs with low results will monitor results for the next assessment cycle to look for trends in assessment results and/or develop more refined assessment measures to identify areas for improvement.
