Adding Curriculum Maps

A Curriculum Map plots Courses and Program Goals along the axes of a grid. Courses and Program Goals must be added to Outcomes Assessment before the Curriculum Map can be created automatically. Place holders for additional Courses (rows) and Program Goals (columns) can be manually added to an automatically generated map. A Curriculum Map also can be created manually by adding rows and columns individually.

Curriculum Maps belong to Programs, so you access the Curriculum Map tool from a Program’s homepage.

After a map has been added, a 360º View Report of the Curriculum Map becomes available by clicking the 360º View icon. This report contains links to other 360º View Reports and is formatted for printing.

The Template for Curriculum Maps is not available in Template Builder and cannot be edited.
