Offering a new graduate degree requires curriculum development, course scheduling and developing an assessment plan. A proper assessment plan ensures program success and continuous improvement. This paper provides the initial assessment plan for a new master’s degree. The timeline of the proposed assessment activities is shared and the initial implementation of the assessment plan for the Spring 2019 semester is discussed. Data collection techniques and assessment benchmarks for the course level and program level assessment is provided. This study introduces the MS in Technology Management degree and focuses on the assessment of the courses and the program.
