Annual Program Quality Assessment (APQA)

All post-secondary programs are reviewed annually through the Annual Program Quality Assessment (APQA) process, a critical step in Humber’s Quality Assurance Framework. This assessment is intended to provide a snapshot of a postsecondary program within its lifecycle. The APQA process prompts academic staff and administrators to reflect on the program’s alignment with program (vocational) learning outcomes, annual performance, and progress toward goals. It also helps them identify progress on action items since the last comprehensive program review. The APQA includes a review of the Program Map and Action Plan.

Alignment with Program Vocational Learning Outcomes

Using program maps as a key resource, program teams assess the relevance and currency of academic programs in terms of structure, delivery and content.

Program Map (Review & Renewal)

After reviewing the alignment of a programs VLOs, the faculty team modifies (when necessary) the program map and uploads a current version to be stored centrally. Faculty teams also indicate any plans for curriculum renewal.

Action Plan Progress towards the program's goals

Progress and completion of goals/recommendations are reflected upon and reported on during the APQA process.
