Program Assessment in an Undergraduate Information Systems Program: Prospects for Curricular and Programmatic Enhancement
International Academy for Information Management Annual Conference,
This paper offers an assessment model approach for program assessment of Information Systems (IS) undergraduate programs. The paper presents the case example of results of program assessment for the B.S. in Information Systems at University of Redlands (UR). It demonstrates the usefulness of the approach to understanding the overall success of an IS degree program as well as details of program elements. The example points to many ways that the outcomes of assessment can be utilized for IS program improvement. Four tables include: knowledge attainment goals of BSIS major program; curriculum of bachelor of science in information systems (BSIS); correlations of important knowledge/competency areas for current BSIS; and correlations of career impact on alumni for important BSIS curricular areas. Also includes two figures. (Contains 18 references.) (AEF)
