Course Activities to assess your learning in individual courses.

Program Outcomes Assessment Activities that might include portfolios, interviews, papers, exams, etc., depending on your college major.

CAAP Exit Test for all AA and AS degree graduates to assess learning and knowledge gained from your experience at NMSU Carlsbad.
