11) For the assessment question(s) and/or assessment goal(s) stated in Question #6:
Summarize the actual results.

a very high percentage were judged to have met the learning objectives. I attribute this to a couple of reasons:

--the students at Shidler are taking classes they have interest in and have been academically screened for entrance.

--the set up we have where the faculty report on the learning objectives of the class they teach could lend itself to biased reporting. a more objective method may provide more actionable results

12) State how the program used the results or plans to use the results. Please be specific.

the results will be used in discussion with the faculty assessment committee, in our accreditation documentation, and in bettering our assessment capability

13) Beyond the results, were there additional conclusions or discoveries?
This can include insights about assessment procedures, teaching and learning, program aspects and so on.

14) If the program did not engage in assessment activities, please explain.
Or, if the program did engage in assessment activities, please add any other important information here.

I expect a more robust program for Spring 2013
