Taking Advantage of the IS 2002 Assessment Exam Capabilities Offered by the Center for Computing Education Research
During the past year the Center for Computing Education Research (CCER), a Division of the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals Education Foundation (ICCP EF), developed an assessment examination with the participation of faculty from over 40 universities. The exam is based simultaneously on the exit skills of the IS 2002 information systems model curriculum, and on its learning units (http://www.is2002.org). On the exam, at least four questions were asked for each higher-level learning unit, and for each sub-skill of the curriculum. Each university defined their course architecture and mapped their learning units to the model curriculum. In the process of doing this, university faculty reflected on their course objectives, and then showed how their objectives related to the national model. Since the CCER exam questions test the learning units, they also indirectly test the students on the course performance of each learning unit. This gave university faculty the opportunity to measure how their students performed, relative to the national sample, as well as to other students at the university.
