To promote student success and achievement, the College of Business conducts a Student Learning Outcomes Assessment each academic year. This process creates greater accountability for student learning and supports a cycle of outcomes assessment and continuous program involvement. Faculty from each program and area within the College are active participants in this process.
The general goals for our programs and the rubrics by which we measure these goals include the following:
Critical Thinking: The ability to actively conceptualize the problem or question, apply knowledge, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information to form an opinion, derive a solution, or come to a decision.

Oral Communication: The assessment examines a student’s oral communication skills.
Teamwork: This assessment examines whether the student demonstrates the ability to work effectively as part of a group. Both the individual team members’ and the team’s performance is examined through a survey.

Writing Effectively: The assessment examines a student’s writing skills. This assessment only should be done after the student has completed other comparable written assignments in which the student has received specific feedback.
