Integrated Outcomes Assessment for Career Enhancement
Student and program outcomes are embraced with the integrated outcomes assessment tools with each aspect listed below.
1. First and foremost, each student’s status on skills, work experience, education, training and community service/activities is completed allowing both the student and staff to know the entry level status.
2. The Career Portfolio gives evidence of the student’s awareness of skills, knowledge and abilities. The grading rubrics and curriculum map the student’s soft skill, technical skill and transferable skills to the target job.
3. Each activity from pamphlets content and discussion to development of career portfolio components has an individual assessment rubric giving the participant and staff member feedback.
4. The outcomes assessment tools allow for individual variables to be compared by group. For instance, the CAREER GAP SOFTWARE allows comparison across participants for target careers, summary of skills as reported by the Department of Labor standards and the comparison of education and training to the CIP codes of program participation. The software reporting further allows for data summary by individual, group and policy as well as facilitating data mining for real time queries.
5. With the program goal to measurably enhance the careers of participants, measures are in place to capture the knowledge of the student, the skills of the student and goals.
6. Measures for gaining awareness and practicing the key pillars of Well
Being are take upon completion of materials and again in the presentation of the Career Portfolio.

Final program outcomes are also recording in the progress toward the target career as benchmarks are distinguishable in 480 plus hour windows on work experience, completion of courses for education, completion of certificate for training, hours of participation in apprentice or internships and acquisition of professional licenses and/or certifications.
8. Overall student’s career enhancement is measured by the start status of knowledge, skills and abilities to the program completion as measured by the Department of Labor’s Job Zone summary and GAP analysis to Target Career.
