This article discusses the process of coding and analyzing data from 376

Programmatic Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs) from 47 technical

and professional communication (TPC) undergraduate degree programs.

The resultant findings suggest that TPC program administrators adopt

common PSLOs, eliminate embedded PSLOs, and consider the assets of

PSLOs beyond assessment. Such practices will ensure that PSLOs

support students as a primary audience and cohere with broader

disciplinary understandings of education at the undergraduate level in TPC.
