## Have formal Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) or Student Learning Outcomes (SLOS) been developed?

Yes, “Goals for Student Learning in a 400-level mathematics course”

## Published where? (website)

## Do PLOs include or imply link to Core Competency? (AY 2017-2018: Written Communication)?

“The skills necessary to Read, write, translate, and articulate mathematically related materials.”

## Process of Core Competency Assessment:

### Course (400- level)

Math 441

### Assignment

Students will provide complete mathematical proof for a mathematical theorem.

### Type of Student Artifact

Typed up presentation using LaTeX.

### Rubric or other instrument

GE Rubric for Written Communication

## Data (measurement of the competency)

The department reviewed 9 student papers, each of which provided a proof of a mathematical theorem with emphasis on the line of reasoning and organization. The average score in both areas was identically 3.0, which indicated the students on average were competent, with 7 of the 9 scoring 3.0 and above. No deficiencies were noted.

## Action Taken in Response to the Data (What will you do in response to the Findings?)

Since no deficiencies were noted there is no need to adjust the curriculum.

## Date of Last Program Review
