KACAD expects graduates to be highly proficient in use of the computer. During the program, students will become skilled in using a password protected web-based computer system. All assignments will require use of the computer. Students are expected to clock in and out with a daily time log, complete assignments and upload them via an online portal. Each assignment has an online rubric and the preceptor will evaluate student work using the portal. Students will also be completing surveys and self-evaluations. The program creates an account for each student with demographic data.
