M.A. 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 M.A. 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 a strategic business plan applying the theories and practices of management and planning for a particular organizational setting.
- PO#3- 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#4- Examine complex organizations from a level of analysis perspective, including the individual, interpersonal, group, and organizational level perspectives.
- PO#5- Evaluate management issues in the context of ethical, technological, structural, cultural, human and environmental factors.
