Student Learning Outcomes & Assessment

Outcomes Assessment

The assessment process provides faculty, staff, and administrators with an opportunity to engage in open, evidence-based dialogue about student learning, to identify areas for improvement in teaching and learning at the course and program levels, and to sustain the conditions that foster student success at the institutional level. The results of learning outcomes assessment are used in concert with other measures of institutional and program effectiveness to guide curriculum development, resource allocation, professional development, and strategic planning. In these ways, outcomes assessment satisfies the goals of engaging in dialogue, identifying effective practices, continuously improving, and communicating the results of assessment and student learning to the campus community.
