Rationale
                                  The value-added for students is clear.
                                  The certificate supports the department,
Mission Statement
                                  college, and university missions.

                                  SLOs are stated clearly.
Student Learning Outcomes
                                  SLOs focus on demonstration of student
(SLOs)
                                  learning.
                                  SLOs are measurable.

                                  The Curriculum Map links SLOs to
                                  certificate courses.
Curriculum Map                    The Curriculum Map identifies where SLOs
                                  are introduced, reinforced, and assessed.
                                  The Curriculum Map identifies the
                                  assessments used for each SLO.

                                  The assessment cycle is clear.
                                  All student learning outcomes are
                                  measured.
                                  Data is collected at least once in the cycle.
                                  The cycle includes a date or time period
Assessment Cycle
                                  for data analysis and interpretation.
                                  The cycle includes a date for planning
                                  improvement actions based on the data
                                  analysis.
                                  The cycle includes a date for dissemination
                                  of results to the appropriate stakeholders.
