A New Online System Comprehensively Integrating Academic Courses, Programs, Learning Outcomes, and Assessments

Track: Assessment

Breakout Session III
Thurs. 11:45 am – 12:45 pm

Abstract
Increased emphasis on learning outcomes and assessments, and revised NJCCC General Education objectives, have created a need for tools to help develop and coordinate assessment planning between programs and courses, track the data, provide assurance that our General Education courses meet state guidelines, and provide reporting capability. This talk will present a new online centralized tool that manages all academic aspects of course and program management – including course and program creation/revision/deletion, review and approval management, General Education outcomes, Master Syllabi management including mapping of Program Learning Outcomes to Course Learning Outcomes, Assessment Management, and online Catalog generation.
