We are in the process of gathering data from NREM courses required for the major regarding student achievement of program SLOs, specific to the level of mastery identified in the curriculum map. We have hired three new instructional faculty in the past 12 months who are teaching or expected to teach these required courses. Therefore, we decided to postpone our assessment for this year until they have offered their required course at least once and have an opportunity to collect these assessment data.
