2020-2021 Academic Program Assessment Reporting

Instructions for 2020-2021 Academic Program Assessment Reporting

This year the Assessment Report will be in two parts, both available as online submissions. Guidance for these forms is provided below.

Part 1:  2020-2021: Program Assessment Report Part 1 – Narrative
Part 2:  2020-2021: GLO #4 Critical Thinking Data Collection, Conclusions, Improvements, Impact  

There are other options if you haven’t yet been able to collect and work with GLO #4 Critical Thinking data this year. Part 2 Data Collection, Conclusions, Improvements, Impact forms for GLO#1 Christian Faith (first choice) and GLO #5 Communicative Fluency are available for data you worked with that measures student learning for 2020-2021.

A representative of every undergraduate major, stand-alone certificate and graduate/professional program for each campus should be able to complete Part 1 by June 30, 2020 and Part 2 as soon thereafter as you have completed your assessment work for 2020-2021, hopefully no later than August 15, 2021.

Please submit at least one of these Part 2 Assessment Reports this year, more than one if you wish and have those data. If you are a new program and don’t yet have students, please submit only Part 1.

If your assessment activities and data collection tools are identical across both campuses, you can complete one Part 1, but data must be reported separately for Ann Arbor, so there should be two Part 2 reports with Mequon and Ann Arbor data submitted separately.

Guidance for Part 1: This online narrative form asks for information in several areas…

  • program assessment and curriculum development activities during 2020-2021
  • upload your Curriculum Map as of the end of the year, that
  • lists all of your Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs),
  • shows Program Learning Outcome alignments to the GLOs,
  • indicates where each PLO is introduced and developed in courses, and assessed at the summative [exit] level for completing students. If entry level assessments are planned, please indicate those as well (those are optional).
  • http://celt.cuw.edu/curriculum-map-example/

An overview and Word replica of Part 1 online narrative form is available  Part 1 Assessment Report 2020-2021 Overview and Walkthrough

Guidance for Part 2: Complete Part 2 after you have collected, analyzed and made conclusions about GLO #4  data for 2020-2021 compared to how you hoped students would perform, and made recommendations for changes to improve student learning if needed.

2020-2021 GLO #4 Critical Thinking Data Collection, Conclusions, Improvements, Impact

This form includes a section for entry-level assignments (if you have one) and a section for exit-level assignments including the type of assignment, the category of GLO #4, the actual data based on the University Common Scale (how many students were in each of these: Significantly Below Expectations; Below Expectations; Meets Expectations; Exceeds Expectations; Significantly Exceeds Expectations), your conclusions about this data- did this meet  your expectations for student performance? your program recommendations for changes, and the impact of any changes you made previously.

There are other Part 2 Data Collection, Conclusions, Improvements, Impact forms. You could submit  GLO#1 Christian Faith data you worked with this year, if you don’t have #4 Critical Thinking data, conclusions and recommendations for this year. GLO #5 Communicative Fluency could also be addressed if you worked with that data this year and did not complete either GLO #4 or GLO #1 data.

If you had students, please submit at least one of these Part 2 of the Assessment Reports this year, more than one if you wish and have those data. Data for the Ann Arbor campus must be reported separately from Mequon or Center data using this form.  Each program should submit separately

2019-2020 Academic Program Assessment Reporting

Instructions for 2019-2020 Academic Program Assessment Reporting

This year the Assessment Report will be in two parts, both available as online submissions. These online forms are self-explanatory but further guidance is provided below.

Part 1:  2019-2020: Program Assessment Report – Narrative
Part 2:  2019-2020: GLO #1 Christian Faith Data Collection

A representative of every undergraduate major, stand-alone certificate and graduate/professional program on each campus should be able to complete Part 1 by June 30, 2020 and Part 2 by November 1, 2020.

Guidance for Part 1: This online narrative form asks for information in four areas…your

  • program outcomes,
  • program assessment and curriculum development activities this past year,
  • Global Learning Outcome (GLO) #1 Christian Faith measurement tools, and
  • curricular activities related to Critical Thinking/Creative Problem Solving (GLO #4), which is the focus next year.

Last August at the Faculty Retreat you worked with your department to review the alignment of your Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) with the Global Learning Outcomes (GLOs).  The fruits of that alignment work are relevant to the narrative form which asks you to upload a document showing how your program learning outcomes align with the six university GLOs. The form also asks you to provide a list all of your program learning outcomes separately. The PLOs to GLOs alignment worksheet or a curriculum map can be used for this purpose.

An overview and Word replica of Part 1 online narrative form is available here.

Guidance for Part 2: After you have collected and evaluated data aligned with GLO #1 Christian Faith at the exit level of your program (and/or at an entry-level point, which not all programs can do), complete the second part of the Assessment Report 2019-2020: GLO #1 Christian Faith Data Collection. Data for the Ann Arbor campus must be reported separately from Mequon and Center data using this form.

An overview and Word replica of Part 2 online data collection form is available here.

If you have questions or problems with the forms, or have other data to report, please contact Elizabeth Evans at elizabeth.evans@cuw.edu or 262 243 4283.

Christian Faith: Meditation on God’s Word with Jason Soenksen

Christian Faith: Meditation on God’s Word with Jason Soenksen

Wednesday April 15, 12:10-1:00pm

This series, related to our Christian Faith Global Learning Outcome, is for faculty and instructional staff.

In modern American society, meditation denotes a spirituality that looks within ourselves. In contrast, the ancient Christian practice of meditation is focused on the Word of God, which comes from outside of us. The Spirit of God works through the words of Scripture to reveal Christ and His work, the central Word of Scripture. In this presentation, Jason Soenksen will leads us in a discussion of the Christian practice of meditation on Scripture. Please join us as we consider how God speaks to us in His Word and the transformative power of meditating on His message.
