Curriculum Mapping
Linking student learning outcomes to the curriculum

A curriculum map is an assessment tool that tracks what is being taught and where. It aims to ensure that student learning outcomes are logically sequenced across courses so that students progressively learn the knowledge and skills that will prepare them for more challenging and higher-level work. Mapping the intended student learning outcomes (SLOs) against the curriculum can help faculty identify gaps (SLOs that are addressed by only a few courses), redundancies (SLOs addressed by too many courses), and misalignments (SLOs development is not progressive) for purposes of improving the overall coherence of a program.
