Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a final paper, which counts for 20% of the grade. The final paper requires that an artifact be developed to test at least seven of the eight course core objectives.
