SOA Undergraduate Embedded Assessment Results 2006-2012

The SOA embedded-assessment system links program-level goals to individual course objectives. Instructors design the learning activities that the course will use to support the program-level goal. In addition, the instructor designs assessment methods for measuring effectiveness and the criteria (rubrics) by which assessment will take place. To help faculty better standardize and document the process, the instructor completes the SOA Course-Embedded Assessment Learning Form for each learning goal assigned to the course. In some cases, individual instructors have modified the form to better reflect assessment methodology applicable to a particular course or learning goal. The following tables show the performance goal established by the instructor, and the percentage of students who satisfactorily met the learning goal. Where the standard form was not utilized, the table below instead links to a pdf of the assessment form and results.
