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. Transportation and Logistics Management students at APUS.
- PO#1- Apply economic principles to evaluate the performance of a transportation system.
- PO#2- Analyze the history, pattern, and impact of laws and regulation on the various modes of transportation in the United States.
- PO#3- Evaluate the importance of transportation at the organizational and national levels.
- PO#4- Examine global transportation issues including systems, documentation, providers, and challenges in international transportation.
- PO#5- Contrast and compare buyer/seller relationships, third-party relationships, negotiations, bidding, contracts, and the challenges of relationship management in transportation.
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. Below are anonymous, self-reported results, from the End of Program survey, for students in the M.A. Transportation and Logistics Management Program.
