Assessment Transparency

The below section follows the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment Transparency Framework for dissemination of our performance data and key assessment data, including those related to accreditation and program development.

A culture of assessment and evaluation is built on mission-based program-level learning goals supported by specific student learning outcomes. These outcomes are the vehicle for structuring and focusing the evidence we collect, the analyses we conduct, and the curricular connections we make.

Evidence of student learning is used to identify areas where changes in policies and practices may lead to improvement. This evidence is gathered at the course and program level, and focuses on both student learning and the overall student experience. Student learning evidence is used to inform improvements in curriculum, pedagogy, resources, and student services.
