Evidence of Student Learning - Internal: How will the program measure what I have learned?: Kaplan University's assessment system assesses student achievement of program and general education outcomes on a six-point scale:
1-No Progress
In general, students reaching a "4-Practiced" level are able to apply learning related to that outcome successfully within a work environment. Students reaching a "5-Proficient" level and a "6-Mastery" level are able to apply learning to new environments and creatively extend knowledge related to the outcome to solve new and more difficult problems, respectively.

In their final courses, 71.6% of students in the Bachelor of Science in Business program demonstrate a "4-Practiced" level of achievement, or higher, on their program outcomes. Additionally, 68.6% of students achieve a "4-Practiced" level on the general education outcomes selected for their program.More Information
