curriculum mapping
Curriculum Mapping

The curriculum map answers two questions:

  • What are the primary student learning outcomes for this program?
  • What courses in the program support each of the program student learning outcomes?
what is curriculum mapping
What is curriculum mapping?
  • Matrix created by program faculty to ensure that students are given the opportunity to develop competence in program level SLO’s in core courses
  • SLO’s can be:
        • Not covered in a course
        • Introduced in a course
        • Developed in a course
        • Assessed in a course
how is curriculum mapping used for assessment
How is curriculum mapping used for assessment?
  • Allows faculty to evaluate and improve curricula by focusing on where SLO’s are Introduced, Developed or Assessed
  • Ensures that SLO’s are introduced early and that they are reinforced and developed throughout the curriculum
  • Ensures that SLO’s are aligned with core courses in the academic program
  • Provides a guideline for choosing where to collect assessment data

assessment methods
Assessment Methods

How will we know if students are accomplishing the desired learning outcomes?


Direct Assessment Methods require students to demonstrate knowledge and skills learned within their educational experience and whether these achievements meet the expected outcomes set for the program.

direct measures
Direct Measures
  • Objective Tests
  • Capstone Courses and projects
  • Portfolios
  • Authentic Assessment
  • Internships/Service Projects

Indirect Assessment Methods includes surveys and interviews which ask students to reflect on their learning.

Components of An Assessment Plan
  • Start with a matrix listing:
    • The Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)
    • Alignment of the SLOs with the curriculum
    • How will each SLO be assessed
    • When and how often
    • Who will be involved

  • In-course: Assignments and exam questions
  • Capstone courses – final projects or portfolios
  • Community service learning
  • Exit interviews or exit surveys
  • Piggyback on other campus assessment efforts
reliability and validity
Reliability and Validity
  • Reliability refers to measurement precision and stability or the correlation coefficient.
  • The closer the reliability coefficient is to one the better the reliability.
  • Objectively scored procedures are more reliable than subjectively scored procedures.
  • Validity refers to how well a procedure assesses what it is supposed to be assessing.
  • Types of Validity
    • Construct, criterion-related, face, formative, and sampling
ethical assessment
Ethical Assessment
  • We must behave ethically when collecting information about people.
  • We must have honest cooperation of respondents and treat them with respect.
ethical concepts
Ethical Concepts
  • Anonymity
  • Autonomy
  • Confidentiality
  • Data ownership
  • Data security
  • Deception
  • Disclosure of rights
  • Harm
  • Informed consent
before you begin
Before You Begin
  • Determine assessment focus
  • Who will be affected by the results
  • Who will get the results
  • How will you collect the data
  • Link the focus, strategy, data analyses, and the decisions of the findings
