Abstract: This paper describes an instrument designed for assessing learning outcomes in data management. In addition to assessment of student learning and ABET outcomes, we have also found the instrument to be effective for determining database placement of incoming information systems (IS) graduate students. Each of these three uses is discussed in this paper. We describe the use of a pre/post test, item validation, and correlation techniques for the purpose of validation and assessment. Although the instrument was developed for local assessment, its design is based on international information systems curriculum guidelines rendering it suitable for use in any program which incorporates database management in its curriculum.
