Presentation Title The Development of Effective Program Educational Objectives

On-Site Speaker (Planned) Jeffrey W. Fergus
Abstract Scope Prior to 2013, Criterion 2 required that programs demonstrate graduate attainment of program educational objectives (PEOs). This requirement constrained the development of PEOs and led to the use of statements that did not effectively support the purpose of PEOs, which is to communicate distinguishing characteristics of the program to the community (e.g. prospective students, employers of graduates) and guide curricular developments. The removal of the requirement to assess attainment of PEOs creates an opportunity to development more effective PEOs that can be used to distinguish programs and guide their development. In this presentation, the requirements of Criterion 2 will be reviewed and strategies for the development of effective PEOs will be discussed.
