Exhibit E:  Inventory of Educational Effectiveness Indicators
 
line

This required WASC inventory is designed to indicate the extent to which the campus is already engaging in the kinds of activities that will be reviewed by the team and Commission as evidence of its systems of educational effectiveness.  The table includes a description of each undergraduate degree-granting program's senior exit requirement as an example of an indicator used to determine that graduates have achieved the appropriate outcomes for the degree.  The contribution of the senior comprehensive requirement to program educational effectiveness has been reviewed by the Academic Senate Committee on Educational Policy (and that report is included as an exhibit to the campus's WASC educational effectiveness review).

 
Undergraduate General Education requirements
(Please see Exhibit M, Objectives and Requirements for the Bachelor Degree at UC Santa Cruz.)

 
Objectives for each degree program
(Full inventory of educational effectiveness indicators in Table 7.1 format.)

For each program/degree, WASC requires:
  1. Have formal learning outcomes been developed?  (If blank, then no formal learning outcomes have been developed.)
  2. Where are these learning outcomes published?
  3. Other than GPA, what measures/indicators are used to determine that graduates have achieved the stated outcomes for the degree (e.g., capstone course, portfolio review, licensure examination)?
  4. Date of last program review for this degree program
  5. Identified learning outcomes
