Abstract
Program assessment is an essential procedure of academic programs accreditation review. As such, it is a cornerstone of quality, enhanced education. At Ajman University, the process of assessing and evaluating courses is done at the departmental level. This paper describes a model that the Department of Information Systems uses to assess the achievement of its program learning outcomes. This model enables the measurement of the level of achievement of each learning outcome to identify areas for improvement in students performance and suggest remedial actions in consultation with faculty concerned. The results of program assessment are used to suggest changes to curricula and courses structure and content to be implemented in the following reaccreditation cycles when these changes are considered substantial.
