M.Ed. Teaching 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 M.Ed. Teaching students at APUS.

  • PO#1- Demonstrate commitment to students and their learning.
  • PO#2- Evaluate the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students.
  • PO#3- Manage and monitor student learning.
  • PO#4- Systematically assess their practice and learn from experience.
  • PO#5- Engage as members of learning communities.
  • PO#6- Integrate problem-based inquiry in course experiences.
  • PO#7- Interact with program mentors, academic specialists, colleagues, parents, and community stakeholders.
  • PO#8- Integrate the use of action research to enhance student achievement and address problems in practice.
