Mapping Courses to Student Outcomes

The following table presents a mapping of courses to Student Outcomes (SOs). It should be noted that it does not list all the courses offered by the department, but only required courses, elective courses at 3000- and 4000-level, and selected elective upper-division 5000-level courses with a large enrollment or a group project that are specifically designed to have a major impact on at least three SOs. Each of these elective courses is indicated by an asterisk. Each SO is assigned to one or more courses. When a check mark X spans multiple courses, it indicates that any one of the courses may be selected by a student and that each of the courses assesses this specific SO. The instructors of these courses are required to teach concepts and techniques associated with the SO and assess the level of attainment of the SO using CDMs. Although SOs are not equally addressed across the curriculum, they are each assigned to a sufficient number of courses to demonstrate the levels of attainment are met and every student is provided with the opportunity to successfully acquire these SOs. This mapping is periodically reviewed, revised if necessary, and approved by the faculty at regular faculty meetings.
