1 MS in Transfusion and Transplantation Sciences Assessment Plan I. Program Outcomes Program Outcomes (POs) are defined as: the knowledge, skills, or behaviors that a program s students should be able to demonstrate upon program completion. The POs represent the big picture, depicting broad aspects of desired student capabilities, encompassing multiple and varied learning experiences and reflecting key criteria of the student s transition from education to profession. POs should be student centered, aligned with national standards, and measurable, assessable, or observable in some way. 1. Demonstrate technical understanding of essential concepts in all aspects of respective study track (blood transfusion medicine or cellular therapies). 2. Communicate complex technical concepts along with test results and methods of problem solving through oral, written and electronic methods clearly and accurately. 3. Demonstrate application of basic concepts to analyze and interpret qualitative and quantitative data in order to resolve technical issues in the laboratory that may ultimately impact patient care. 4. Achieve accurate and precise results when performing lab related activities. 5. Demonstrate adequate knowledge and skills to function at the level of an advanced technologist in the laboratory for either track. 6. Demonstrate knowledge of the regulations and standards (track dependent) to ensure laboratory compliance. 7. Demonstrate knowledge of skills required to manage a laboratory in either track. (e.g, project management, budgeting, SOP writing, HR skills, experimental design, quality plan preparation, etc)

A formal written presentation of original research performed by the student Results from end of program national certification exam are used to evaluate curriculum Staff evaluations of student rotations through each department of the blood center. These evaluations include some professional development points on time; effective communication; provides students with ideas for thesis. Student surveys completed soon after graduation designed to learn the student s opinion of program strengths and weaknesses Expected Level of Achievement All students must have thesis committee members agreement that student s effort is acceptable prior to upload of thesis to grad school site. All students must have thesis committee members agreement that student s effort is acceptable prior to upload of thesis to grad school site. 80% of students must pass the SBB exam on the first attempt. *req d by accrediting body* 100% of students must receive a satisfactory score (average score of 3 on a 5 point scale). 5 point scale; any items below 3 are evaluated by faculty for improvement ideas; open comment section is reviewed by all faculty and/or disciplinespecific faculty based on the nature of the comment or suggestion. Employer Surveys Alumni Surveys Surveys sent to employers of recent graduates to assess whether program graduates have the necessary job skills and if there are other skills that employers particularly value that graduates are not acquiring in the program. Surveys sent to alumni one time 3 years after graduation to assess positions achieved and whether the program prepared them well for their position requirements 100% participation by employers of graduates 2 yrs following completion. *req d by accrediting body* 100% participation by graduates 2 yrs after completion of the program; score of 3 on scale of 5. *required by accrediting body*

11 Assessment type Curriculum Analysis Description An annual survey to faculty on suggestions for curriculum improvement Expected Level of Achievement 100% participation by faculty

12 IV. Assessment Infrastructure The Program Director will assess learning outcomes every three years, and present a summary to faculty. At expected enrollment levels of 2 students per year, a detailed summary of each student s progress can be prepared from a review of all assessments for each student. The summary will be presented to all Program faculty to prompt each faculty member (5) to suggest improvements in either the curriculum or the means of assessment. The Program Director will be responsible for implementing those improvements with consensus approval. Because of the low enrollment, curriculum adjustments typically happen for each individual student to match their interests and maximize their experience in the Program.
