Academic Program Assessment

The degree granting program faculty members at UWG are responsible for the development of all learning outcomes that reflect the unique character of their disciplines. Each program must also have the following:

  • Assessment Plan that contains:
    • Cleary stated student learning outcomes and their relation to the UWG strategic plan.
    • A description of the intended measurments to be used in the assessment of each outcome providing specific information as to the who, what, when, and how each outcome will be assessed.
  • Curriculum & Assessment Map

What Programs Should be Assessed?

  • All undergraduate degrees
  • All graduate degrees
  • All stand-alone minors 

    All academic programs, as defined by the University System of Georgia Degrees and Majors Authorized (DMA), as well as all stand-alone minors, are responsible for the assessment of program level student learning and operational outcomes.

    A stand-alone minor is a minor that can be earned in a program that does not offer a degree with a major in that discipline (for example, a student can earn a minor in Africana Studies but cannot complete a bachelor’s degree with a major in Africana Studies.) Minors in a discipline where a corresponding major is offered, are not required to submit assessment reports as it is assumed that those students are being assessed within the major program.
