While assessment is normally conducted at a programmatic (degree, or institution-wide) level, it is interesting and informative to learn where specific courses fit into assessment and how those courses have been adjusted in response to data collected in the assessment process. As members of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business (ALSB), the authors were particularly interested in researching how the courses they teach (Business Law and Legal Environment of Business, in particular) fit into the assessment scheme of business programs. A survey of members of ALSB was conducted, and the data was collected and analyzed. This article first describes the assessment process in general and assessment of business programs in particular. Next, the assessment survey of members of the ALSB is discussed and interpreted. Several hypotheses are then tested by correlating responses to key questions. Finally, the authors discuss areas for future research, which the survey and its results have generated.
