Student Learning Assessment

The PROC 6000 Course will be assessed using Webster's Assessment Tool. This must be completed by each student prior to the end of the term and consists of an ungraded assessment of all 6000 courses ongoing within Webster during this academic year. The results are non-attributable; however, the entire assessment must be completed and submitted at the same time you submit the final written project prior to completion of this course. The Assessment will be uploaded into the Assessment Assignment Area. We will discuss it further during our class sessions.
