3.1—Program Criteria (PC)
replace the longstanding Student Performance Criteria (SPC) with Program Criteria and Student Criteria. Program Criteria ask programs to evaluate how they structure the entire student experience to ensure the eight criteria are addressed by the time of graduation. These criteria take a holistic approach to examining how instruction and experiences contribute to students’ knowledge acquisition and understanding.
The evidence required to demonstrate such achievement is described in the
(3.5.1) and includes a narrative describing how the program achieves each criterion, how the criterion is assessed on a recurring basis, and how modifications are made in response to that assessment. Achievement of each criterion will be measured by the quality and effectiveness of the supporting materials, evidence of direct action as a result of self-evaluation, and verification through interviews.
Student work may be submitted in a response to condition 3.1, although it is not required or anticipated.
