The Assessment of Student Learning
- Developing clearly articulated learning outcomes: the knowledge, skills and competencies that students are expected to exhibit upon successful completion of a course, academic program, co-curricular program, general education requirement, or other specific set of experiences.
- Offering courses, programs, and experiences that provide purposeful opportunities for students to achieve those learning outcomes.
- Assessing student achievement of those learning outcomes.
- Using the results of those assessments to improve teaching and learning and information planning and resource allocation decisions.
