Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The ICS Program Coordinator will analyze core assessment results for a sampling of all ICS courses offered. In analyzing the results, the ICS Program Coordinator will grade the exams using the (very specific) grading criteria shown on the exam solution. The final grade is in the form of a percentage where the percentages equate to the following levels of success:
Does not meet expectations
65% to 84%
No exam graded.
The ICS Program Coordinator will use the core assessment scores to compare results across all instructional modalities.
For this course, the assessment is based on a final exam. There will be 4 questions in each of the 8 categories, i.e. Synthesis, Analysis,… etc. Thus, there will be 32 questions total in the final exam. Furthermore, all 4 questions for each category should cover all 4 learning outcomes.
