Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course's Core Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. For this course, the core assessment is a final exam to be administered in all sections of EC 141. This exam is worth 20 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of four Core Learning Outcomes (Outcomes 1, 2, 3, and 4 listed on this syllabus) through definitions, short essay, and graphing questions. For each core outcome, the student should be prepared to draw the relevant graph by hand, define basic concepts or policies, identify relevant shifts in the curves, and state final impacts on relevant variables.
The core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES exam that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home exam. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours. No calculators, computers, or materials other than a writing instrument may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.
