Description: If you plan to collect outcome assessment data across multiple programs on common learning outcomes shared across those programs, then you will need to create Outcome Sets in AEFIS. Outcome Sets outside of a Program are the only want data may be aggregated across multiple separate Programs if a common outcome is shared. Outcome Sets may be created at the Institution, College, or Department level. In order to collect that data once the Outcome Sets exist, they must be brought into a program, and related to the Program Learning Outcomes that are mapped to a Course/Course Learning Outcome.
