Rationale for the Plan

During the AY' 2018-2019 PG 1, PSLO 1.1, PG 2, PSLO 2.1 were assessed. For the upcoming AY 2019-2020 we will follow the 5-year plan and assess PSLO’S that thus far were not assessed, PLSO 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5. This is a reassessment of the Fall 2016-Spring 2018 Annual Program Assessment Report, VIII (Synopsis Plan for upcoming academic year: 2018-2019).

Data Collection and Evaluation

The data will be collected from HE 321, HE 316 and HE 211. The assessment will take place during a practical exam that takes place at the last session of the semester. During the exam, students will be asked to identify characteristics of physical, emotional, and family health. Additionally, students will be asked to identify how stress impacts wellness. Dr. Brodsky, the course instructor will administer the practical exam. The department assessment committee will assist in evaluating, analyzing, and interpreting the data.
