Student and Program Performance
2020-2021 – Assessment of Student and Program Performance
The primary purpose of outcome assessment at Post University is to assess and evaluate the quality and value of academic content and services to continuously improve the overall value and experience for students.
Post University has developed a comprehensive system to assess our academic goals and outcomes. The figure below shows the variety and frequency of tools and perspectives (external and internal) we use in our assessment process. This system enables analysis of program performance and student satisfaction data which informs improvements in programs, curriculum, and instructional practices.
The outcome results below represent examples of performance data from some of the major tools in the assessment system described previously.
Student Learning Outcomes
Each program at Post University encompasses student learning outcomes aligned with industry expectations and are assessed at appropriate points in the student’s learning journey. Each student learning outcome represents learning that students gain from throughout their entire program. The following table lists the programs and outcome assessment results through April 2021. Assessment of student learning outcomes is an ongoing process, and the results below represent a point in time in the assessment cycle. Students are assessed on a 4-point scale (1=Below Expectations, 2=Approaches Expectations, 3=Meets Expectations, 4=Exceeds Expectations). The goal is for students to achieve the Meets or Exceeds Expectations level of learning for all student learning outcomes.
