Laird, Curt; Johnson, Dennis A.; Alderman, Heather
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v86 n8 p27-33 2015
Many higher education sport management programs are currently in the process of seeking accreditation from the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA). This article provides a best-practice method for aligning student learning outcomes with a sport management program's mission and goals. Formative and summative assessment procedures are highlighted using direct and indirect measures. Data collection and evaluation utilizing rubrics are included. Finally, pitfalls of the program assessment are delineated, as well as how program directors should use accreditation data to "close the loop" in terms of strategic planning.
