Step 2: How to Map the Curriculum

In the second step of the assessment cycle, faculty develop learning outcomes for their programs' required courses and map the curriculum. A curriculum map is a graphical illustration of the relationship between a program’s course learning outcomes (CLO's) and its program learning outcomes (PLO's). By mapping the curriculum, faculty ensure that students have sufficient educational opportunities to develop the PLO's.
