1 ASSESSMENT PLAN Computer Science, MS Updated May 25, 2007 Prologue: Form of this report The Department has an unusual mission, that stands significantly in contrast to that of most University Computer Science departments: briefly, to prepare individuals for careers in the real world of computing. The Department has long recognized that this mission makes it incumbent upon us to be even more careful and comprehensive in evaluating our performance than is required of most university Computer Science departments, a standard which is itself quite rigorous. To meet this need, the Department has an established and on-going assessment procedure that involves using a number of methods to obtain, evaluate, and use a number of distinct types of information. Reporting on this manyfaceted assessment process therefore requires reporting information on a number of objectives, processes, results, and use of results. In order to most effectively present this information, we have chosen to present it in two forms: narrative and tabular. The narrative below presents a detailed discursive description of the Department s Assessment procedures and results. The tables following present an equally detailed picture, in a visually distinct format. The goal is to maximal clarity of presentation to all readers.

2 Department of Computer Science Assessment Procedures and Results Master Of Science Narrative Mission and Objectives Mission: The mission of the NIU Department of Computer Science is to prepare individuals for rewarding, successful, and interesting careers in industry, government, and nonprofit organizations. The Department is dedicated to providing students with the technical background and the analytical skills required to carry out analysis, design, coding, and testing of computer software. Objectives: Objectives for the Master of Science program in Computer Science are: 1. The ability to analyze a business situations and problems and decide whether a business problems is amenable to a computer-based solution. 2. The ability to design a practical software solution to a business problem. 3. The ability to design and implement individual computer programs that are correct, substantial, easy-to-use, efficient, and easily understood by other programmers. 4. The ability to test and prove that a computer program is correct. 5. The ability to learn throughout their careers. 6. Interpersonal and team building skills at a level appropriate for career advancement. 7. The ability to analyze computer operating systems and how they relate to the architecture of the computers they control. 8. The ability to apply the general principles of business as needed for computing solutions to business problems. In addition, an objective or criterion that is perhaps more easily stated separately is this: the Department has both Undergraduate and Master of Science programs in Computer Science. The mission of the Department is the same for both Undergraduate and students: to prepare individuals for rewarding, successful, and interesting careers in industry, government, and nonprofit organizations. The additional objective or criterion is that the graduates of the Master of Science program demonstrate a significantly greater mastery of the knowledge, skills, and abilities in the above 8 objectives than at the undergraduate level, i.e., demonstration of greater proficiency, depth of knowledge, and sophistication of the principles and applications of these principles in the above areas Assessment Methodology To assess the degree to which the above objectives are achieved, and to identify areas for improvement, the Department uses a multi-faceted evaluation methodology, which includes information from graduating Masters students, evaluation by industry of the actual on-the-job performance by students, and information from industry professional councils. The department assesses its master s program using several methods and eight distinct sources of information: A. The Department surveys graduate students in their final term each semester to determine their

3 views about how well the program objectives were achieved. (The survey and instrument together with the accompanying cover letter may be found in Appendix A.) B. The Department also carefully evaluates and uses the results of the University surveys of alumni, conducted one year after graduation. (Copies of these survey instruments may be obtained from the University Assessment Office.) C. The Department carefully compares, on an ongoing basis, the curriculum with the curriculum of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the two premiere professional organizations for computer scientists. D. A representative from the Department attends the monthly meetings of the Chicago Technology Professional Educators Council (CTPEC), a consortium of the data processing training divisions from approximately 30 major Chicago area corporations. Membership in this consortium (formerly named the Chicago Data Processing Educational Council) provides the Department with valuable information on the ever-changing computing and training needs of business and industry. This information is regularly used to evaluate needs for changes in course material and changes to the curriculum. The Department has been a member of CTPEC/CDPEC since 1979; this lengthy relationship provides an additional and valuable perspective on the field, which also plays a significant role on Departmental decisions on curriculum and teaching methods. E. The Department is a member of the Chicago Organization of Data Processing Educators (CODE), a consortium of companies that use third party trainers, and two faculty members participate in SHARE, Inc., the world s largest computer user group. These two professional organizations give the Department additional information about business and industry computing trends, information which is used in decisions on curriculum and teaching methods. F. Upon completion of internships, students re required to file a report on their work during the course of the internship. In addition, the Department receives evaluations of all interns ir supervisors in the respective companies in which the students had the internship. These reports and evaluations are extremely valuable in assessing the degree to which the students computing education is meeting their needs for working as computing professionals in the real world. (The Employer Internship Assessment Questionnaire appears in Appendix B.) Information from these reports and evaluations is input to the process for revising the overall curriculum and specific course material. G. The Department requires all Master s Degree students to take the Master s Comprehensive Examination in order to graduate (currently) or to prepare and defend a research thesis (to be implemented in ). H. The faculty annually review course syllabi relative to student competencies and changing needs of the professional computing world. In each of these eight forms of evaluation, the data from the evaluation is input to the Department curriculum assessment and revision methodology, thereby closing the loop and ensuring that information relating to attainment of Department goals is acted upon in a timely way. Student Outcomes One of the most direct and useful measures used Department is the Master s Comprehensive Examination, required of all of Master s candidates near the conclusion of their programs. This demanding exam, administered each fall, spring and summer term, includes questions from each of the required courses that all graduate students must complete, i.e., there are questions from CSCI 464, Data Structures, CSCI 468, Systems Programming, and from three of the four areas from which students must

4 select courses. Questions are carefully designed to test mastery of concepts and techniques from graduate courses at the time of completion of the entire graduate program. Results on this examination thus provide a valuable additional resource in assessing the degree to which the Department is achieving its objective of preparing students to function as professional in the computing field. Students who fail the examination are generally allowed a second and final attempt at the examination, but this opportunity is offered only to students whose initial performance merits a second opportunity. The internship evaluations provide another valuable measure of student outcomes. Knowing students perceptions about advising matters, course availability, the department s teaching strengths, and related matters as revealed on regular surveys has also helped the department be more responsive to student needs and concerns. For example, survey information gathered from graduate students completing their programs of study has resulted in changes in the advising information that the department makes available to all of its graduate students. In addition, student claims that specific course objectives are not being met are brought to the attention of faculty members teaching those courses. Efforts to address these perceptions have included changing textbooks, posting supplementary material on the web, assigning additional exercises to clarify matters, improving coordination in multiple sectioned courses, and adjusting the sequencing of topics and assignments. Use of Assessment Outcomes The results of all of the above assessment measures are regularly distributed to three bodies within the Department: The faculty The Committee,Department Advisory Committee These bodies, which in some cases overlap in membership, have distinct missions and perspectives, which ensures a thorough, multi-perspective evaluation of the implications of evaluation information for the Department. The results have occasioned frequent changes in specific courses, in course requirements, in course offering patterns, and in the requirements for the master s degree. For example, the department relies heavily on its formal contacts with industry training personnel to learn what type of topic courses it should be offering students to fulfill the elective requirements of their programs and, more generally, uses these contacts to keep abreast of the computing industry s ever-changing requirements. Examples of recently introduced graduate topics courses include computer security, pattern recognition, web services, bioinformatics, and image processing. The Department has also used the information gained from its multifaceted assessment program to consolidate the subject matter of existing courses to provide room in its set of required courses for the imposition of new major requirements. Identification of industry trends is used to modify the curriculum to meet the needs of the students entering the computing field. In an unusual additional instance of closing the assessment loop, the department has used the extremely positive feedback it regularly receives through all of its assessment vehicles to provide the computing industrial computing community with information about the quality and reputation of the program. This information is acted on by industry, in recruiting and hiring the Department s graduating Master s degree students, and, on occasion, by providing additional, much needed, financial support to the

5 Department. As would be expected in an assessment process that uses such a wide variety of information, it is commonplace for the Department to receive conflicting information on needs and desires of students and industry. The Department regards these conflicts, and the inevitable costs associated with introduction of new material and/or courses, as simply part of the cost of doing business as a Department with the mission of educating students to take positions as professionals in an industry as fast-changing as the information technology industry. The Department relies on the multi-body, multi-perspective evaluation process mentioned above to ensure that all information, including conflicting information and cost information, is evaluated and acted upon appropriately, to the best of our ability. In some cases this results in changes requested in surveys being implemented in almost the form requested; in others it results in the decision not to implement a desirable, but very expensive, curriculum change. For example, a recommendation that the department should include course work about an industry specific software application often has cost implications which makes implementing such a recommendation impossible. In some instances, have been rejected because they address training issues not appropriate to an educational program. In summary, the department is using the results of its multifaceted assessment procedures to constantly assess the department s graduate courses, its graduate program, and its services for graduate students. The assessment results have led to improved student services and improvements in the graduate program itself. The Department has an established and effective process for gathering information, delivering that information to appropriate faculty bodies, evaluating implications of the information, and implementing change in a timely manner. There is every reason to believe that this process will continue to improve the Department s performance in achieving its mission.

11 V. Department s Response to Assessment Results The Committee of the Department of Computer Science meets throughout the year. At their meetings, the results of the various assessment instruments are presented and discussed. The department reviews this feedback and discusses ways in which to change the curriculum to better achieve the stated goals. Based on this review, the Committee makes specific proposals concerning the program, and these proposals are presented to appropriate faculty (often the entire faculty), to the Chair, and to the Advisory Committee (when appropriate) for implementation. In the subsequent year, the Committee writes a follow-up report in which the changes that have resulted from the assessment are documented. In the past, such assessment measures have occasioned frequent changes in specific courses, in course requirements, in course offering patterns, and in the requirements for each of the three emphases. For example, the information gathered from the assessment program (particularly from Methods A, C, H and I) prompted the department to consolidate the subject matter of existing courses (CSCI 562 and 563) to provide graduate students the opportunity for additional electives in object-oriented programming and design. This curriculum update was a direct result of assessment feedback. Another example is that, acting primarily on information from Methods C, F, and I, the Department has initiated courses in.net programming, web services, security, and bioinformatics, at the graduate level. In all such deliberations, however, conflicting information and the costs associated with implementing recommended changes are thoroughly investigated. For example, a recommendation that the department should include course work about an industry specific software package often has cost implications that make implementing such a recommendation impossible. Other must also be rejected because they address training issues not appropriate to an educational program. The department also assesses student opinions of factors that are not directly attributable to learning outcomes. Obtaining students perceptions about advising matters, course availability, the department s teaching strengths, and related matters has helped the department to be more responsive to student needs and concerns, even though these perceptions are not actually directly related to learning outcomes. This feedback is regularly used to revise the relevant process, thus closing the feedback loop. For example, survey information gathered from graduating students has resulted in changes in the advising information that the department makes available to all of its students.
