13) Summarize the results of the assessment activities checked in question 7. For example, report the percentage of students who achieved each SLO.

the test of the new objectives has provided useful information.  it looks at whether or not, in the capstone class, they studnet synthesizes the information from the various topic areas.  The results indicate that this takes place.

the management BBA specific SLO's showed a very hight rate of meeting needs (95%)
