Title:"Note-Worthy Practice - Standard 3 - Chicago State"
Tool/Process Description:
The Chicago State University College of Pharmacy created and has utilized a comprehensive assessment plan that incorporates a continuous and systematic evaluation process. The plan is designed to measure the achievement of mission-related goals, improve overall assessment manageability, and prioritize assessment-related activities. Assessments are divided and categorized by program outcome, data source, method of assessment, assessment goal, data collection interval, formative/summative assessment, direct or indirect measurements, who collects and evaluates the data, and when the assessments will occur. In addition to curricular and student learning outcomes assessment, areas of college evaluations include areas focused on critical thinking, longitudinal experiential outcomes, information literacy, small group learning community satisfaction, student recruitment and admissions, faculty satisfaction, faculty productivity (teaching, primary duties, scholarship, service), student leadership, college-based community and professional engagement, external funding, and professional partnerships (quantitative and qualitative). Measurements are continuous and the Assessment Director, Assessment and Curriculum Committees guide review of assessment plan progress. Assessment priorities are aligned to the University and College strategic plans. The assessment plan is also aligned with the College’s Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) as a component of the University’s “Planning, Measurement and Effectiveness (PME)” process. Departmental and college-wide achievement of the KPIs are also components of the administrative annual employment evaluation process. The assessment plan was recently highlighted as an effective example of a college-wide assessment program as a component of the University’s recent Higher Learning Commission (HLC) re-accreditation visit. The College’s assessment plan is posted on the University website.

Tool/Process Details:

Length of use:4-6 years
Requirements:The College has previously used LiveText as its main assessment and accreditation management system to assist in the tracking and compilation of assessment data. The system provided a method of gathering and storing embedded course assessments, course management, student e-portfolios, reflective learning evaluation rubrics and feedback dissemination, curricular mapping, and other pertinent evaluations. Currently, assessment data is being migrated into the ACPE-AAMS.
