Ten Year Assessment of Learning Outcomes of a Computer Information Systems (CIS) Program
Abraham, Samuel
Information Systems Education Journal, v11 n6 p50-58 Dec 2013
In recent years greater attention has been paid to develop learning outcomes for academic programs and then to develop methods to assess these learning outcomes. Generally speaking, there are two kinds of outcomes: course outcomes and program outcomes. Assessments of these learning outcomes in institutions of higher education are mandated by the accrediting organizations. This paper describes a methodology used by a Computer Information Systems program in a small undergraduate institution to develop its learning outcomes, to collect assessment data, and to evaluate or assess its course and program outcomes during a ten year period. The data collection and the subsequent data analysis showed the strengths and weaknesses of the program and we were able to address a number of these weaknesses.
