All academic programs at Appalachian have established general learning goals of the program broken down into specific student learning outcomes (SLOs). These SLOs represent what a student should be able to do as a result of successfully completing the program. Student performance on these outcomes are routinely assessed by program faculty as a way of informing programmatic improvement efforts.
