10-102-3 Business Management WTCS TSA Scoring Guide
Directions
The Business Management program provides learners with foundational skills needed to operate a business.
Graduates prepare to successfully meet the challenges and opportunities encountered in today’s dynamic
business environment. Learners develop competence in the business functions of planning, organizing,
directing, and controlling.
This scoring guide will be used to evaluate your work by examining one or more artifacts (assignments) that
document your achievement of each program outcome. Format, timing, and course will be designated by
your local college. Your instructor will provide detailed instructions on the tool(s) used.
After your instructor completes this scoring guide, you will receive feedback on your performance including
your areas of accomplishment and areas that need improvement.

Rating Scale
Value Description

Scoring Standard
You will provide evidence of achievement by producing one or more artifacts or products. Examples of
artifacts might include a business plan or presentations. Artifacts may be developed within the context of an
existing course, across multiple courses, in a capstone course, or in an internship, and presented in a portfolio or
another format designated by the sponsoring college. You must achieve an overall average rating of PASS on
all criteria for each program outcome to demonstrate competence (passing). A rating of FAIL on any criterion
results in a FAIL score for that program outcome and for the TSA Assessment.
