The Center for Advancement of Pharmacy Education (CAPE) educational outcomes were created to guide curricular discussions of faculty and preceptors within the academy and curriculum planning, delivery, and assessment within colleges and schools of pharmacy (CAPE Panel Report-Educational Outcomes, 2013). The COPHS review process involves an annual review and mapping of CAPE domains to the College’s terminal outcomes, to confirm consistency in developing learning objectives and defining curricular priorities for pharmacy and other health professions.
The North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) pass-rate is a universal educational outcome. The COPHS reviews results annually to assess students' knowledge and competency to practice pharmacy, as well as measure program effectiveness. Peer institutions results are also reviewed and reported.
