Program Learning Outcomes Assessment at UC Davis

Program Learning Outcomes Assessment

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 which faculty can use to inform programmatic and curricular decision-making.

“As a matter of integrity, we should ... make sure, through assessment, that every student who completes a learning experience has indeed achieved its learning goals” (Suskie, 2018, p. 158).

Assessment is a team sport

The UC Davis Assessment Team comprises professional assessment staff and faculty assessment champions. Our goal is to foster a culture of curiosity about student learning and build capacity for sustainable outcomes assessment practices which inform decision-making at program, college, and campus levels.
