Five faculty in Department of Microbiology run five programs (BS/BA Microbiology; BS Molecular Cell Biology (MCB); MS/PhD Microbiology). One of three faculty members lost in 2104 had run assessment for many years. To 2011 this comprised submitting paper form to Assessment Office. Replaced by selecting ‘radio buttons’ and typing in online version. Faculty member new to assessment took over BS/BA Microbiology assessment in 2012. No BS/BA assessment activities due to time constraints, inexperience; 2012 and 2013 reports used as templates in 2013 and 2014, respectively. No BS/BA assessment undertaken. MCB assessment activities run by second faculty passed in 2014 to faculty reporting on BS/BA Microbiology. First assessment for latter degrees undertaken late in 2014, i.e., faculty provided Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) for their courses. SLOs for all required and elective BS/BA Microbiology courses mapped to revised Program Learning Outcomes through collaboration with Assessment Office in Spring 2015. by Stuart P. Donachie
