Our academic programs are built on specific, measurable expectations, or learning outcomes that deliver the skills you need to succeed in your field.We also publish career outcomes—research on how our graduates areperforming professionally.Learn how outcomes improve education.
We work with faculty and employers to learn what's needed to succeed, which defines learning outcomes for each program; courses are designed to deliver those outcomes.
During the final stages of the program, instructors assess students' demonstrated proficiency of the learning outcomes and record each student's achievement.
We then publish outcome reports, showing our students' demonstrated proficiency. We use the reports to continuously improve our programs.
At graduation and after, we survey our alumni about their satisfaction with Capella and their professional achievements, and publish the findings.
