Student Outcomes Assessment of a Logistics and Supply Chair Management Major
Walter, Clyde Kenneth
Journal of Case Studies in Accreditation and Assessment, v2 Jul 2012
Assessment of specialized programs, such as logistics and supply chain management program described here, may pose challenges because previous experience are less widely shared than in the more mainline subjects. This case study provides one model that may guide other faculties facing a similar assignment. The report detailed the steps followed to assess an undergraduate program in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The starting point was a two-stagecourse-mapping, which identified strengths and weaknesses of course coverage compared to college goals, and also compared to a set of topic areas recommended by faculty members. Next in the process was a survey of graduating students who responded to questions about basic concepts in their recently completed courses. The assessment was considered useful in providing a feedback path necessary for faculty to "close the loop" in course design and teaching. In addition, this case study showed how a process from a small liberal arts college may be adopted to a narrowly focused business program in a larger and more diverse university setting.
