accredited school you know you need to assess how what you teach is improving
each year and document this process – work that can take away from your
professor’s precious time for teaching. Using
automatically prepared reports from a low-cost nationally normed test framed by
the ACM-AIS Model Curriculum can simplify this process whether you are
currently accredited or are in the process of accreditation. The testing method is based on the IS2010 Model
The ICCP – a
society of professional associations and its Center for Computing Education
Research (CCER) have developed a nationally normed testing method (examination)
for direct assessment of instructional programs. This assessment can assist you
and the reports developed can help with the re-accreditation process of
university programs for Information Systems.
How can ICCP
Save on costs– with tests already nationally normed you can assess your courses and
specific learning units within a three and a half hour period.
with the tests already prepared, tested and verified for statistical validity,
you don’t need to do this on a course by course basis – you can do it during
the four year program and/or at the end.
Save on Resources– doesn’t have to tie up a professors’ time with developing testing or
Save on student and faculty feedback: Students and teachers know scores
immediately upon completion of the test. External audited and automated process
– provides less conflict within the school.
Save on Reporting: After testing we prepare reports on how the school and students did
individually and how they compared to the national mean (average) – at the
learning outcome level. You can then instantly report both on program outcomes
as well as course level learning outcomes. Spreadsheets provided allow for
further analysis or consolidation into college specific needs.

contributes to ISA Mastery Certification from ICCP
Certification available for passing students
the ICCP test the student is eligible to receive an ISA (information Systems
analyst) certificate. Receiving the ISA certificate, from the ICCP, is just the
beginning for many of your students who will go on to receive additional
certifications to aid their careers and this will increase their visibility in
shows that certified graduates compete for better jobs, make more money, and
receive recognition and promotion faster than their peers . . . and may even
contribute more to University fundraisers.
