Pilot Program Statements

Ten graduate programs participated in the pilot phase of the project. Five of the pilot programs produced two- or three-page statements that summarized the program’s educational goals and student outcomes, and described the process the program used to arrive at its outcomes and its plans for assessing students’ attainment of them. The other five programs produced longer documents with more detail and also specifically consulted a set of draft “principles” as part of their process.

The following pilot programs agreed to share their graduate student outcomes statements. (Those with a single asterisk reflect the shorter, streamlined approach; those with a double asterisk are longer documents, with the length variable at individual programs’ discretion.)

MS and PhD programs in Aerospace Engineering & Mechanics*

MS and PhD programs in Applied Economics*
