Co-Curricular Transcript Proposal Frequently Asked Questions


What is our goal?

To create a transcript that documents what each student learns as a result of participating in co-curricular programs.

What is the next step?

Student Affairs departments should submit at least two solid proposals before classes start on January 21, 2020. Start with programs that are already listed in the co-curricular catalog. Use the down time over the breaks to work on proposals and submit more than two proposals if you are able.

When are the next co-curricular trainings taking place?

December 13th from 11:00-4:30 (see attached flyer)

January 5th from 10:00-4:30 (watch for it in DOSA Developments)


What if I can't attend all of the co-curricular trainings on the same day?

 Attend the sessions you need most or split them up over two months.

How do I access the transcript proposal forms?

Submit new proposals through the 2019-2020 proposal form:

To edit proposals you already started:

  1. Log into RamConnect
  2. On the left side of the page, click on My Surveys/Forms
  3. Search for your proposals


Can I transfer my 2018-2019 transcript proposal to the 2019-2020 form?

Yes, if that’s easier and faster for you, but you are not required to do so. In the new form, the order of the questions were revised to make it easier to complete. Resources and tips were added to increase chances of success.

Can I see a copy of a proposal that has been approved?

Yes, it is attached. This particular one is from the 2018-19 proposal form. We do not have an approved proposal for the 2019-2020 form to share yet. Yours could be the first!

How will proposals be evaluated?

See attached.

Where is the Co-Curricular Catalog located?

  4. Frequently Asked Questions

How do I develop learning outcomes?

  • Attend the co-curricular workshop entitled, Creating and Assessing Learning Outcomes (attached is the worksheet for the workshop).
  • Use the WCU Co-Curricular Learning Rubrics to get ideas flowing.
  • Talk to members of the Co-curricular Review Committee.

What’s Bloom’s Taxonomy?

How does Bloom’s Taxonomy apply to the co-curricular experience?

Bloom’s Remember & Understand levels = Milestone 1 in the WCU Co-Curricular Experience

Bloom’s Apply & Analyze levels               = Milestones 2 & 3

Bloom’s Evaluate & Create levels             = Milestone 4

Where can I learn about/review student development theories and models?

 What are professional standards?


“The Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) is a consortium of 42 professional associations concerned with the creation and promotion of professional standards for the development, assessment, and improvement of quality student learning, programs, and services.” (

If the professional organization for your field has developed standards, they may describe them differently.

Where do I find the professional standards for my field/department?

The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs purchases the CAS standards every time they are updated. They are stored on the DOSA SharePoint website.

The professional organization for your field may have established standards for your area. To find out, you may have to do a web search, reach out to colleagues in your field or your professional organization. Your AVP may also recommend specific standards you should be using.

Do I need a risk management plan for my program? How do I create one?

Please reach out to your AVP.

What if I still have questions?

Reach out to the members of the Co-Curricular Review Team or your AVP as soon as possible.
