Course assignments and assessments are linked to outcomes, allowing for the comparison of target and actual outcomes and the identification of strengths and areas of concern. The CES allows faculty to develop an action plan for course improvement as needed and to document implemented course changes and student concerns. Used every semester, the CES provides a history of continuous course evaluation and course improvement.
