Assessing learning outcomes

Responsibility for ensuring the ongoing quality of academic programs rests with our faculty, who are experts in their disciplines and best positioned to articulate the standards of performance for student learning in their degree programs. The central goal of outcomes assessment is to generate actionable information about student learning to inform programmatic and curricular decision-making. Outcomes assessment is vital to ensuring equitable opportunities-to-learn for all students.

Our locally-defined approach to outcomes assessment is informed by the Principles of Good Practice for Assessing Student Learning.
