CORE COMPONENT - 3A

The organization's goals for student learning outcomes are clearly stated for each educational program and make effective assessment possible.

Examples of Evidence

  • The organization clearly differentiates its learning goals for undergraduate, graduate, and post-baccalaureate programs by identifying the expected learning outcomes for each.
  • Assessment of student learning provides evidence at multiple levels: course, program, and institutional.
  • Assessment of student learning includes multiple direct and indirect measures of student learning.
  • Results obtained through assessment of student learning are available to appropriate constituencies, including students themselves.
  • The organization integrates into its assessment of student learning the data reported for purposes of external accountability (e.g., graduation rates, passage rates on licensing exams, placement rates, transfer rates).
  • The organization's assessment of student learning extends to all educational offerings, including credit and non-credit certificate programs.
  • Faculty are involved in defining expected student learning outcomes and creating the strategies to determine whether those outcomes are achieved.
  • Faculty and administrators routinely review the effectiveness and uses of the organization's program to assess student learning.
