Career programs develop outcomes that describe the general goals that the program emphasizes. Specific outcomes for each program are published in the catalog and serve as the basis for an Annual Career Program Assessment.
Faculty members in each program area develop an outcome-based assessment procedure. Many career programs require students to take a capstone course or participate in an internship. Portfolio reviews, reports from internship supervisors, reviews of projects from capstone courses and work samples taken from selected courses are commonly used as the basis for an annual assessment.
Outside professionals and/or college staff members are typically utilized to assess the quality of students' work with the aid of a rubric designed to gather information related to program outcomes.
