The PAL System is a tool that could be used for programmatic assessment as well as individual student assessment. Students, employers and faculty form the principal user groups of the system, each subject to individual provisions with regard to data access and reporting.
Students enter registration, placement and job evaluation data and view their complete evaluation history.
The Employer Interface has two sections, one for the student’s supervisor and one for the human resources officer responsible for the cooperative education program at the company. Supervisors evaluate individual student performance. The human resources contact person has access to their company placement history and can review reports submitted by their supervisors and add additional comments.
Faculty can both review individual student evaluations and add comments as well as view aggregated reports of student performance to answer questions regarding student learning outcomes.
