Assessment Plans

Program faculty and/or staff have created assessment plans for their respective undergraduate degree programs, the undergraduate Liberal Education Program, graduate degree programs, credit-bearing certificates, and undergraduate co-curricular programs. Assessment plans include:

  • Program learning outcome statement(s) 
  • Alignment of program learning outcomes to campus undergraduate SLOs or graduate learning goal categories and reporting year
  • Brief descriptions of assessment methods/measures and performance indicator(s)
  • A summary of faculty/staff and stakeholder involvement and general means through which assessment information informs program improvements
  • Alignment of courses to program learning outcomes (applicable for all curricular program assessment plans)

Assessment plans may be used for:

  • Communicating program learning outcomes to current and potential students through links to majors on the UMD Academics website
  • Ensuring program learning outcomes are assessed and reported based on the schedule stated on the plan
  • Demonstrating how courses contribute to student learning in the program, such as through student advising and statements on syllabi
  • Demonstrating how co-curricular programs contribute to student learning and development
