Learning Outcome Management System This is a Windows application that interacts with a database to manage learning outcomes for College of Business courses. Each course has specific learning outcomes that detail the focus of the course and what students will be able to do after completing the course. The information recorded about each outcome includes the following: EMPHASIS: How strongly does the course focus on the outcome? ASSESSMENT: How do we know students successfully achieve the outcome? ACCOMPLISHMENT: How accomplished are the students’ skills in subsequent courses? PREREQUISITE: Which follow up courses rely on the skills acquired in this course? This tool uses the database to track any changes made to this information and new outcomes added or old ones dropped. It also tracks a network of prerequisite courses and their requirements. Individual course outcomes contribute to one or more of 13 College of Business Core Learning Outcomes, which are broader definitions of what a student can do upon completion of a business degree. Keeping a history of the changes and additions made to the individual course learning outcomes and the College of Business Core outcomes helps us understand how the degree program develops over time and to make effective changes to meet current and future industry demands. Database ERD College of Business Core Learning Outcomes: 1. Each student can recognize and analyze problems and choose and defend resolutions for practical situations that occur in business operating within a global economy. 2. Each student shall be able to converse and to write at an acceptable level for business communications in English. 3. Each student shall understand and be able to use basic concepts in algebra, calculus and quantitative methods in solving business problems. 4. Each student shall understand the basic principles of both macro and microeconomics and apply those principles in a business context. 5. Each student shall understand the political, regulatory and environmental context in which the global practice of business is conducted. 6. Each student can conceptualize a complex business issue into a coherent written statement and oral presentation. 7. Each student shall have a thorough understanding of core business disciplines including accounting, finance, management, and marketing and be able to apply this understanding to business situations. 8. Each student shall be able to evaluate the financial position of organizations. 9. Each student must understand and be able to use team building, collaborative behaviors and project management in the accomplishment of group tasks. 10. Each student shall be able to select and apply appropriate quantitative and non quantitative tools and methodologies to make reasoned recommendations. 11. Each student shall demonstrate information technology skills as they apply to today’s business environment. 12. Each student shall understand and be able to apply the basic concepts of business technology, sustainability, entrepreneurship, and business law. 13. Each student shall have an appreciation of ethical issues in economic competition, managing organizations and participating in the community. Some queries supported by this tool: ~ Which outcomes from this course contribute to a specific COB Core outcome? ~ Which COB Core outcomes does this course contribute to through its outcomes? ~ What are all the outcomes this course used to have but are no longer current? ~ Do any courses rely on this outcome as a prerequisite? ~ Does this course need a prerequisite skill that is not fulfilled by any current COB course? ~ Which prerequisites does this course have? ~ For which courses is this course a prerequisite? ~ How well does this course outcome prepare students for subsequent courses?
