B.A.S. Technical 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.A.S. Technical Management students at APUS.

  • PO#1- Conduct business problem focused management research, including collection and analysis of data, and communication of findings by using qualitative and quantitative research methods.
  • PO#2- Develop and foster critical thinking, analysis, planning, and communication skills.
  • PO#3- Examine complex organizational issues that include staffing, budgeting, strategic management, quality control, project management, supply chain management, marketing management, information systems, production and operations.
  • PO#4- Demonstrate a proficiency in identifying and solving problems related to the specialty area using Technical Management, Project Management, Technical Research Management, Management Information Systems, and Transportation Security Management.
  • PO#5- Develop an analytical framework using a variety of approaches to apply leadership and management theory and practice to address the challenges of global organizations in this century.
  • PO#6- Evaluate technical management issues in the context of ethical, technological, structural, cultural, human and environmental factors.

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.A.S. Technical Management students in the School of Business.

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. Below are anonymous, self-reported results, from the End of Program survey, for students in the B.A.S. Technical Management Program.
