Students will participate in two or more high impact/co-curricular experiences during the undergraduate program.
Objective 1 Students will demonstrate participation in two or more high impact/co-curricular experiences during the undergraduate program as measured by validated documentation.

Outcome CSD-BS-One Information Literacy (undergraduate)

Students will identify access to, evaluate, and synthesize multiple forms of communication sciences and disorders [CSD] information.

Students will:
-- demonstrate knowledge of CSD content
--demonstrate understanding of relevance of CSD content
--demonstrate ability to communicate verbal and written synthesized CSD content

Objective 1 Students will demonstrate knowledge of communication sciences and disorders content [CSD] content

Measure 2

2018 Status
Not Yet Achieved
For Fall 2018, 68% of all students met the threshold of scoring a minimum of 80% on the exam metric. An additional 27% of students scored within ten percent of the threshold. The Target of 100% had a threshold of 80% and 68% of students met this threshold.

Objective 2 Students will demonstrate understanding of relevance of communication sciences and disorders [CSD] content

Measure 4

2018 Status
Not Yet Achieved
No data reported

2017 Status
Not Yet Achieved
For Fall 2017, 92% of students achieved a score of at least 80% on the examination of neurological foundations of communication disorders. Eight percent of students did not meet the threshold. The student average score of 91.7 is set as baseline, however the threshold is that all students would score 80% or better on this measure.

Objective 3 Students will demonstrate ability to communicate verbal and written synthesized communication sciences and disorders [CSD] content

Outcome CSD-BS-Two Critical Thinking - Undergraduate

Students will use systematic reasoning to examine and evaluate communication sciences and disorders [CSD] information and ideas in order to synthesize conclusions to propose new perspectives and solutions.

Students will:
--assess relevant and theoretical information, perspectives and assumptions
--construct logical conclusions based on reason and evidence
--evaluate the relevant CSD theoretical information
Objective 1 Students will assess relevant and theoretical information, perspectives and assumptions.
