Give an example of how your department used the assessment of goals and outcomes to change/improve a process.

After considerable investigation and departmental discussion, we instituted a process where students must have properly completed a pre-requisite course in chemistry and/or mathematics with a minimum grade of 'C' in order to enroll in the next sequential chemistry course.  This has helped us to screen students from taking a chemistry course before they are adequately prepared.  Using the same rationale based on several years of student performance, we have a minimum threshold on the Freshman Index Number that an entering freshman must have in order to take the freshman chemistry series.
