Abstract: This paper describes the development of the assessment program for the Computer Science program at a regional university in the Southwest. Assessment has become a major component in higher education. It is both a requirement for funding and accreditation, a signal of the quality of education provided, and a tool for improvement. Starting with an assessment program consisting of a single measurement at the end of the program, we have developed an assessment program that monitors student learning continuously throughout the curriculum. The new program allows for faster and more accurate identification of potential for improvement. The process of assessment program conversion and results from the first year are discussed in this paper.
