Is the outcomes assessment plan that you submitted to the IACBE still current or have you made changes? The outcomes assessment plan that we have previously submitted is still current. Changes have been made and the revised plan is attached. X We have made changes, and the revised plan will be sent to the IACBE by: December 20, Complete the Outcomes Assessment Results form below and include it with this annual report to the IACBE. Note: Section II of the form (Operational Assessment) needs to be completed only if you received first-time accreditation or reaffirmation of accreditation after January 1, An example of a completed form can be found in a separate document that is available for download on the IACBE s website at: Section I (Student Learning Assessment) of the Outcomes Assessment Results form must be completed for each business program that is accredited by the IACBE (i.e., a separate table must be provided for each program). Add tables, and insert or delete rows in the tables as needed in order to accommodate the number of your (i) business programs, (ii) majors, concentrations, specializations, emphases, options, or tracks in the programs, (iii) intended student learning outcomes, and (iv) intended operational outcomes. In the sections of the assessment results tables entitled Summary of Achievement of Intended Student Learning Outcomes and Summary of Achievement of Intended Operational IACBE Annual Report:

10 Outcomes, do not add or delete columns. Space is provided in these sections for four direct measures of student learning, four indirect measures of student learning, and eight operational assessment measures/methods. If you are employing fewer than this number of assessment instruments, simply leave cells in the unused columns blank. If you are employing more than this number of instruments, you will need to create additional summary-of-achievement tables to report your assessment information. Delete rows in the assessment results tables that do not apply to your academic business unit (e.g., if the business unit does not offer any majors, concentrations, specializations, emphases, options, or tracks in its programs, then delete those rows in the tables). In the sections of the assessment results tables entitled Summary of Achievement of Intended Student Learning Outcomes and Summary of Achievement of Intended Operational Outcomes, enter Met in a given cell of the table if the performance target for the instrument in that column was achieved for the intended outcome in that row; Not Met if the performance target for the instrument in that column was not achieved for the intended outcome in that row; or N/A (Not Assessed) if the instrument in that column does not measure the intended outcome in that row. Student learning performance targets/criteria are the measurable objectives associated with the assessment instruments and rubrics used by the academic business unit in determining whether the intended student learning outcomes have been achieved. For example, if the academic business unit is using a comprehensive project in a capstone course as a direct measure of student learning, then a performance target might be that, on the project evaluation rubric, at least 80% of the students will be rated at the highest level (e.g., proficient, exemplary, etc.) on each learning-outcome-related project evaluation criterion. Operational performance targets/criteria are the measurable objectives associated with the assessment instruments used by the academic business unit in determining whether the intended operational outcomes have been achieved. For example, if the academic business unit has identified an operational outcome pertaining to faculty teaching and is using a senior exit survey as a measure of this outcome, then a performance target might be that 90% of the students will be either satisfied or highly satisfied with various aspects of faculty teaching as identified by relevant items in the survey form. Your student learning assessment results tables need to include two or more direct measures of student learning and two or more indirect measures of student learning for each IACBE-accredited program. These measures must be used at the program level. At the bottom of each assessment results table, space is provided to identify changes and improvements that you plan to make as a result of your assessment activity. Italicized entries in the form represent areas where the academic business unit should insert its own assessment information. IACBE Annual Report:

Modification of the Capstone Experience. Although it is very encouraging that all of the students felt that the Business Plan project helped them apply or learn what they studied in their business courses, only 1 out of 5 students taking Entrepreneurship Project reported that it was very likely that he would implement his business plan, and another 1 said it was possible. The two students who did poorly showed a distinct lack of interest in the business plan as a capstone experience. We will experiment next year with using a business simulation as an integrative experience in the capstone course. 2. Admission and Academic Advising. Compared to last year, this year s business plans showed lower quality in 2 of the 5 business plans submitted. This is not a reflection on the quality of courses taught but a direct result of the quality of students enrolled in this course. On the one hand, we had a student who wanted to get away with minimum of work and on the other hand we had a student who wanted to do well but did not have the necessary skills. As mentioned earlier, the student had been given a waiver for courses she had completed in China. Consequently, this student mentioned to me several times that she felt inadequate in her knowledge. We have to be more careful in evaluating the competence of our students when they have taken courses elsewhere. Additionally, English writing skills was another area of concern with the two international students in this class. One of the two students was organized. She finished all her work on the various sections of the project ahead of time and was able to get help with her English writing. This was not the case with the second student who was struggling with remembering concepts, and filling the business plan template for the first time. She had difficulty completing her project on time let alone getting help with her writing. IACBE Annual Report:
