Program assessment and evaluation

The following are the Concordia University Wisconsin School of Pharmacy quality indicators consistent with the ACPE policy on programmatic disclosure.

Assessment transparency

The below section follows the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment Transparency Framework for dissemination of our performance data and key assessment data, including those related to accreditation and program development.

Student learning outcomes & plan

A culture of assessment and evaluation is built on mission-based program-level learning goals supported by specific student learning outcomes. These outcomes are the vehicle for structuring and focusing the evidence we collect, the analyses we conduct, and the curricular connections we make. Our assessment plan, developed by faculty, focuses on the improvement of student learning and program effectiveness.

Assessment resources

ExamSoft supports the testing process, including exam, administration, delivery, and analysis. It delivers flexible, secure tests in any location on campus. ExamSoft is used as a learning tool on three different levels (student, instructor, and curricular).

For students, ExamSoft helps break down performance, focus learning, and foster self-directed learning. This tool helps instructors know what components of their course were mastered and which were more challenging. Finally, feedback generated from ExamSoft aids in overall curricular improvement.

Current assessment and evaluation activities

Current assessment and evaluation activities include information on a full range of projects and activities to gauge student learning, make improvements, or respond to accountability interests. The Office of Assessment along with Assessment Committee developed the Programmatic Assessment Activities document and the Programmatic Assessment Calendar to summarize yearly assessment and evaluation activities.

Evidence of student learning

Evidence of student learning is comprised of information from a variety of sources, including key program quality indicators (above), like graduation and examination first-time pass rates, as well as survey data.

Evidence of student learning is used to identify areas where changes in policies and practices may lead to improvement. This evidence is gathered at the course and program level, and focuses on both student learning and the overall student experience. Student learning evidence is used to inform improvements in curriculum, pedagogy, resources, and student services.
