Abstract

This paper presents the various perspectives on and levels of outcomes assessment developed by a construction management program implementing the new American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) Student Learning Outcomes accreditation requirements. The various elements of assessment are described with the methods of course assessment used in consideration of course learning outcomes and ultimately student learning outcomes. The process of developing the program through various iterations of faculty findings and subsequent refinements are illustrated with further implementation of data collection using Institutional Planning, Assessment and Research (IPAR) documentation to enhance the faculty collection process. These assessment efforts determined how the program continually contributed to student growth and development. The development process provides other construction management education programs, faculty, and researchers with a systematic structure for use in assessing program outcomes.
