Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes: Workplace, Family, and Community Roles
Johnson, Cheryl A.; Heath, Claudia J.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v103 n2 p47-51 2011
A project was conducted to assess Family Studies bachelor's degree graduates' use of learning outcomes from course competencies in personal finance, family lifespan development, intervention, and advocacy and policy, and to determine how they apply these learning outcomes to their workplace, family, and community roles. Alumni surveys completed by the respondents indicated that they are employed in expected fields of work and involved in further education. Respondents most often applied learning outcomes to family roles, followed by integration into all three roles. Learning outcomes rarely were applied solely to community roles. This program assessment model provides an easily replicable protocol for use in integrated family and consumer sciences academic programs. (Contains 2 tables.)
