Program Learning Outcomes #1-20, which correspond with ACCE SLOs #1-20, are directly assessed by tests, homework assignments, and projects assigned in courses per the following matrix attached at the end of this document as Exhibit 2.
Program Learning Outcome #21 is directly assessed by completion of several items at the conclusion of each student’s co-op semester:
- A formal performance review by the co-op employer for their particular student.
- The student’s completion of a review of their employer.
- The student’s completion of an assignment as required by the Experience-Based Learning & Career Education department (typically an essay).
Students who enter the CM program directly must successfully complete five semesters of co-op experience in order to be certified for graduation. Allowances are made to require fewer co-op experiences for students who transfer into the CM program after the freshman year, but in no case can a transfer student graduate from the CM program with less than three semesters of co-op experience.
