ACE Recertification

To ensure that ACE certified courses continue to align with the outcome, ACE Governing Document IV established a process to recertify and assess ACE courses on a five-year rotating basis (see http://ace.unl.edu/recertification/schedule).  The recertification process is completed at the course level and includes information on the students' achievement of the outcome (based on the assessment of the student work that was collected each time the ACE course was taught) and any modifications made to the course to improve student learning of the outcome.
