Overall grades are not a direct measure of student learning. Student work completed as a normal part of a course or program, however, can be used to assess student learning as long as that work is tied to expected student learning outcomes and the expected levels of performance are established in advance by a rubric or other relevant criteria.
Assessment reports must provide meaningful analysis of all assessment data. Evidence should be used to explore whether changes led to improved learning.
At a minimum, the results and analysis of student learning evidence must be presented to and reviewed by relevant program faculty to consider possible course or program changes.
UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS must assess at least one UULO per year, which may or may not overlap with program learning outcomes being assessed.
GRADUATE PROGRAMS must address at least one of the following per year:
Student engagement in research, scholarship, creative expression and/or appropriate high-level professional practice
Activities requiring originality, critical analysis and expertise
The development of extensive knowledge in the field under study
