Rowan College of South Jersey publishes the Course Learning Outcomes Data Report to assess students achievements through attainment of student and program learning outcomes. This report is designed to collect the necessary data to illustrate student success.
Types of Assessment
When evaluating students for knowledge, mastery, and understanding, professors may use formative or summative assessments.
Benjamin Bloom, an educational researcher, developed a system of categories that classify intellectual behavior in learning. When developing activities and student learning outcomes, each SLO should begin each with an action verb based on Bloom's Taxonomy.
Core competencies reflect the global, technological, and historical perspectives that are essential for all RCSJ graduates; however, each program varies regarding competencies required for a specific degree.
Program Learning Outcomes
Each degree program at RCSJ has created program learning outcomes that students will complete at the end of the degree or certificate. The program learning outcomes are assessed every two years for core courses in the major or option.
The course syllabi, outlines or other brief statements of the main points of a course, the subjects of a course of lectures, and the contents of a curriculum, for all Rowan College of South Jersey courses can be found here.
