Assessment: focuses on learning and teaching. It provides information to make changes in the learning environment. It is a systematic process of collecting and interpreting information to base decisions (formative).
1. What type of evaluation methodologies would you use to assess this outcome?
2. How would this be reflected in the program evaluation plan?
Program Learning Outcomes:
Summative Evaluation of the Program:
Agency Evaluation of Graduates:
(Crosslink test plan with outcomes)

What are Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs)?
The knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes that students are expected to develop as a result of their overall experiences with any aspect of the college, including courses, programs, and student services.
What is the purpose of ILOs?
Institutional learning outcomes (ILOs) are designed to help guide individual departments and disciplines in the development of outcomes for programs, courses and services, and to help shape the decision-making processes of the college.
How are ILOs different from Program and Course Learning Outcomes?
They are inter‐related. ILOs are the collective expression of the learning environment the college offers to any enrolled student. Program and course learning outcomes focus on the more particular skills, knowledge, and attitudes that students learn in programs and courses.
