Abstract

A number of Computer Science and Information Systems programs have effectively defined learning outcomes, course level competencies, and conducted assessments at the program level to determine areas for continuous improvement. However, many of these programs do not fully leverage the course competencies during the actual delivery and assessment of the course. This paper presents how course competencies can be used to effectively deliver and assess the course content, and give valuable timely feedback to the students. Using a large first year core course of the BSc (Information Systems Management) program (called Object Oriented Application Development course-OOAD) as an example, this paper shows how the course competencies support the five phases of the Course Life Cycle and Competency Framework.
