Problem | Recommendation |
---|---|

(curriculum Target values calculated by DAP –curriculum Target values determined a priori* by department) > (N** × curriculum Target values determined a priori* by department). | This means that the curriculum does not reflect perfectly the requirements of the program set by the department. Target values of every course should be revised. |

(curriculum Target values calculated by DAP –curriculum Target values determined a posteriori** by department) > (N× curriculum Target values a posteriori*** determined by department) | This means that the constituents recommend modification of Target values in order to adapt to local and global market/research circumstances. Target values of every course should be revised. This case is mainly encountered in long assessment cycles. |

Curriculum (Score/Tool) < 60% (or 3/5). | If all course-level improvements did not solve the problem then the structure and the sequence of curriculum should be revised. For example, additional pre-requisite or co-requisite courses should be inserted. |

The weighted average of the results, of all assessment tools, calculated for an outcome is less than (3/5). | If all course-level improvements (courses sub-outcomes, courses Target values, courses assessment activities…etc.) did not solve the problem then a deep revision of curriculum structure and sequence should be carried out. |

The result of one of the assessment tools is < (3/5) for an outcome. | - If the weighted average of all assessment tools is higher than (3/5) and the results of the high- weight assessment tools (most important) are satisfactory then no or only simple actions are implemented e.g. adding more activities related to the outcome in the courses. - If the weighted average of all assessment tools is lower than (3/5) then deep revisions should be carried out at course and curriculum levels. |

(Target-Tool) > (N* × Target) | A revisiting of courses should be carried in order to achieve a curriculum total Tool value higher than threshold. |

Change of outcome significance based on outcomes review by program constituents. | This means that the constituents recommend modifying the outcome translation into the curriculum in order to adapt to local/global market/research circumstances. This will induce a change in many courses sub-outcomes in order to make them complement each other and achieve the outcome new definition. |

Addition or removal of one of the PEOs or SOsM based on outcomes review by program constituents. | This means that the constituents recommend modifying the outcomes list to adapt to local/global market/research circumstances. This will induce a change in curriculum. This will induce a change in many courses sub-outcomes in order to make them complement each other and achieve the new outcome. |
