MAC has adopted Missouri’s State-Level Academic Skills and Knowledge areas as institutional learning outcomes. These outcomes also serve as the Missouri Core 42 competencies.
These outcomes are measured on the course-level by aligning course-level student learning outcomes to the skills or knowledge areas as applicable.
Institutional Outcomes Summaries:
Note: Collection of assessment data for Spring and Summer 2020 semesters was optional due to the shift to remote learning.
Career and Technical programs undergo review every odd fiscal year as required by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). The program review follows the Common Criteria and Quality Indicators and results are reported to the state.
Faculty create course-level student learning outcomes and map those outcomes to the Missouri State Level goals. Faculty create an assessment plan for each student learning outcome that includes a description of the measurement and an acceptable target of achievement. Departments meet once a semester to review outcomes, measurements, and findings. Faculty members create action plans targeted at improving student performance on learning outcomes.
