The Assessment of Student Learning

In this Section


The Process:

  1. 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.
  2. Offering courses, programs, and experiences that provide purposeful opportunities for students to achieve those learning outcomes.
  3. Assessing student achievement of those learning outcomes.
  4. Using the results of those assessments to improve teaching and learning and information planning and resource allocation decisions.
