The degree granting program faculty members at Clayton State are responsible for the development of all learning outcomes and have worked in teams to develop sets of outcomes that reflect the unique character of their disciplines. Each program is required to have an assessment plan that includes program student learning outcomes, a curriculum mapping matrix for the outcomes, a data collection plan, and a discussion of the results with proposed changes. With the exception of programs that have external accreditation, program assessment planning is guided by the standard assessment template (found below).
Beginning with the 2013-2014 academic year, the following cycle will be used to collect updated plans, data, and evaluation reports on an annual basis. The change in the reporting cycle is a result of feedback from department chairs that coordinate more than one academic program and requested a change so they could devote more attention to each report.
