Assurance of learning is partially pursued by applying Course-Embedded Outcomes Assesment (CEOA) methods that directly measure student performance across six goals. Briefly, these goals include:
- Goal One, as presented in the Goal One Table (see link), is measured at two levels – the common business core and the major level. The common business core pertains to themes and management knowledge and skills areas that are common to all students’ pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, regardless of their major. Student performance regarding these goals is measured in lower division Common Business Core courses and the capstone course. It is expected that all business students, regardless of their majors, achieve an acceptable level of learning as prescribed by the rubrics prepared by faculty members. Major level learning outcomes embody knowledge and skills that are discipline specific and are measured by rubrics prepared by faculty within those majors.
- Goals Two through Six (see link) represent general knowledge, skills and competencies that a Business School graduate should possess. These goals measure those knowledge, skills and competencies. All business school graduates are expected to master them.
Each semester, during a one-day retreat, faculty members, members of the BAAC, and staff use the data collected by the various measurement tools to close the loop and improve all aspects of educating our students. Note, “LO” in the downloadable PDFs refer to “learning outcome,” which is an assessable learning area within that goal. You can download our Assurance of Learning goals by clicking below:
