All Academic departments at UWF are responsible for developing student learning outcomes, completing a curriculum audit, and designing an assessment plan to generate evidence regarding the quality of their programs. The CSAA Program Coordinator has formal responsibility for submitting the Academic Learning Plan (ALP) to the Director of the Center for University Teaching, Learning and Assessment for review and the Dean of the College of Professional Studies for approval. Relevant student learning outcomes related to the ALP should be included in the design of course syllabi.
The UWF Academic Learning Plan incorporates student learning outcome activity across five domains that should characterize the skills and abilities of graduates from a master's or doctoral program at UWF, regardless of discipline. Every ALP will address the following five domains:
- discipline knowledge and skills
- critical thinking
- project management
