The last time we assessed master students' thesis and professional paper in Spring 2013, the results indicated satisfactory or above satisfactory with a minor comment about having a standard format for thesis and professional paper. As having no immidiate area discovered for an improvement through this assessment, we did not develop any new strategy to make changes. However, we did realize that our SLOs should be checked to see if they align with UHM ILO. The TIM SLOs will be reviewed for its alighment with UHM ILOs during this school year.
