Student Learning Outcomes
Student learning outcome statements clearly state the knowledge, skills, attitudes, competencies, and habits of mind that students are expected to acquire from an educational experience.
Assessment plans for gathering evidence of student learning include institution-wide or program-specific approaches that convey expected outcomes, how student learning will be assessed, the data collection tools and approaches that will be used, and the timeline for implementation.
Assessment resources encompass information or training provided to faculty and staff to help them understand, develop, implement, communicate, and use evidence of student learning.
Current Assessment Activities
Current assessment activities include information on a range of projects and activities recently completed or currently underway to gauge student learning, make improvements, or respond to accountability interests.
Use of Student Learning Evidence
Effective use of student learning evidence may inform institutional decision-making, planning, goal setting, program review, faculty development, course and curricular revision, and accountability or accreditation self-study.
