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).
- Global Learning Outcome (GLO) #4 Critical Thinking measurement tools, including the “categories” for GLO #4. See categories at https://celt.cuw.edu/designing-a-critical-thinking-assignment/2020-2021-categories-for-critical-thinking-creative-problem-solving-3/
- Next Year’s Focus GLO curricular activities and thoughts related to Service and Global Citizenship (GLO #2).

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
