The Assessment Plan for the Audrey Cohen School of Human Services and Education (ACSHSE) serves to employ and fulfill the MCNY Strategic Plan 2009-2014, sub-goal 1.A.4 to "create and implement a comprehensive plan to assess program specific outcomes, dimensional outcomes across programs, and the systematic application of PCE (Purpose-Centered Education)". Additionally, ACSHSE will seek to satisfy the accrediting bodies of Middle States Commission on Higher Education and of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards pertaining to assessment of student learning. Compliance with the assessment standards for satisfaction of the accrediting bodies pertaining to the programs in ACSHSE was a major contributing factor in the design, planning and implementation of a formal assessment plan. ACSHSE has adopted the recommended four-step planning process as highlighted by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education: (1) Define clear goals; (2) Implementation of strategies to achieve stated goals; (3) Assessment of the achievement of stated goals; and (4) use of results and data from assessment to inform curricula updates/revisions (Assessing Student Learning, 2005).

Assessment Implementation & Analysis for Program Improvement

There are five major phases of the learning outcome assessment process:

  1. Learning Objectives Review - A review of the learning objectives found in the syllabi will be conducted to determine the measurability of the objectives and, if not, correct would be documented to proceed further.
  2. Assessment/Instruments - A review of the assessment instruments to determine that they are reflective of program and course goals and provide data for curriculum enhancement.
  3. Analysis of Data and Presentation of Findings - Present findings on how effective was the learning as inferred by an analysis of the assessment instruments.
  4. Report on the entire process which includes review and modifications made to learning objectives, topics, assessment instruments throughout the process and compiled containing recommendations for course and programs improvements.
  5. Reiterate Assessment - Reiterate the entire process of the same course and/or program objectives to ensure effectiveness of changes.
