Campus Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes

Campus Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes

College of Health and Human Services

Campus Assessment Plan - Unit Assessment Plans

College of Health and Human Services

Each School/program in the CHHS uses both direct (course embedded exams, written papers, etc) and indirect (exit and alumni surveys for example) measures of student learning.  In addition, the programs in nursing, radiologic sciences, and dental hygiene use licensure examination results as a measure of student learning outcomes.  The College as a whole does not yet have a formal assessment plan but plans to develop one in the future.  It is likely a college-wide plan would include not only individual school/program assessment plans but also one or more common measure of learning (for, perhaps, a common student outcome) for the college.
