B.S. Health Information Management Assessment Results

Program Learning Outcomes

By using various assessment tools and/or rubrics within the classroom, American Public University System (APUS) is able to capture a snapshot of students’ success in fulfilling their program outcomes.  Signature assignments, generally in the final course of a program, are used to assess students’ proficiency in meeting each program outcome (PO).  In order to show proficiency in an area, a student must achieve a score of 85% or greater. American Public University System strives to have 70% or more (university benchmark) of our students reaching the 85% proficiency standard. When this benchmark isn't met, action is taken to improve curriculum and instruction to better serve our students. The below chart shows combined results of B.S. Health Information Management students at APUS.

  • PO#1- Assess organizational compliance with state and federal governmental regulations, accreditation, licensure, and certification requirements.
  • PO#2- Construct accurate quantitative evaluations related to health care statistics, financial management, and accounting standards and best practices.
  • PO#3- Analyze legal and ethical concerns related to confidentiality, security, and privacy issues in the management of health information in the digital world.
  • PO#4- Implement supervisory and management skills across business functions.
  • PO#5- Demonstrate knowledge of specialized medical language, classification systems, and reimbursement methodology common in the field of health information management.

Learning Outcomes Assessment: ETS Proficiency Profile

Undergraduate students at American Public University System (both AMU and APU) are required to participate in our national testing initiative as they near degree completion.  This involves completion of the ETS Proficiency Profile, a general education assessment.  This initiative enables us to evaluate and inform teaching and learning, as well as benchmark our programs.  Below are combined results from the ETS Proficiency Profile for B.S. Health Information Management students in the School of Health Sciences.
