For some programs, the process of engaging all of their faculty in creating the curriculum map generates a lot of discussion and helps identify gaps in the curriculum or questions they would like their assessment plan to address. Below are some prompts to encourage these discussions:
- Are there any PLOs that are not sufficiently covered by our course requirements or milestones?
- Do we rely too much on electives to cover certain PLOs, and is this working well for our program or are students missing certain learning opportunities depending on the electives they choose to take?
- How much does the coverage of a PLO depend on the instructor who teaches it?
- How well do our courses map onto our PLOs, and does this lead us to want to change any of our courses or PLOs?
