The Filipino program has engaged in assessment activities in the past but these efforts are limited and uncoordinated. Student learning outcomes are assessed by individual faculty in their courses but assessment tools are not standardized within the Filipino program. These assessments do not follow a specific and unified plan at the program (or departmental) level. There is also a need to move from indirect assessment (exit surveys) to direct assessment of our student learning outcomes. We also need an assessment plan at the program level that supports current assessment activities done at the classroom level. These results will be used to improve teaching strategies and assignments, and to propose/implement curriculum changes, as needed. The Filipino Program Assessment Project’s main goals are (1) to confirm and/or tweak the program’s student learning outcomes, (2) to review and reformat the curriculum map, and (3) to create and implement a signature assignment for 300-400 level courses and use this as evidence for direct assessment. The poster will present the process and results of the assessment project as well as reflections on strategies that helped to accomplish our goals. by Pia Arboleda and Jayson Parba
