Program Learning Outcomes

By using various assessment tools and/or rubrics within the classroom, American Public University System (APUS) can capture a snapshot of students’ success in fulfilling their program outcomes.  Signature assignments 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 for this program.




Learning Outcomes Assessment: Peregrine General Education

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 Peregrine general education (PGE) assessment.  This initiative enables us to evaluate and inform teaching and learning, as well as benchmark our programs. Data visualizations are available, showing APUS’ overall PGE results.


End of Program Survey

Student satisfaction is extremely important at American Public University System. Students are asked to complete a survey at the conclusion of their program to give insight on their experience. An interactive dashboard is available, that can be filtered by program, showing all End of Program survey results.


Peregrine Programmatic Assessment

B.A. Supply Chain Management students at AMU and APU are required to participate in our Peregrine Programmatic initiative.  This involves completion of an inbound and outbound assessment focusing on topics specific to their program of study. Assessments are administered during required courses for the program.  This initiative enables us to evaluate and inform teaching and learning.  Below are results from 2023.
