Assessment Testing in Capstone Courses


Because of their unique end-of-program status in the LAC, Capstone sections may be used to provide information on Students Learning Outcomes by means of the MAPP or other designated examinations. Capstone instructors are required to make one session of their course available for outcomes assessment each semester.  Instructors are encouraged to provide incentives – for instance, class participation points – for students who participate in outcomes assessment activities.
