The Academic Assessment Website (Academic Assessment) has been selected by the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) as the featured website for July.

The NILOA featured website is a service intended to point others to promising practices in innovative and transparent online communication of student learning outcomes assessment.

NILOA had the following to say about the UNLV's academic assessment website:

"The office of academic assessment’s website, at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), hosts a variety of resources showcasing the university’s efforts on improving student learning. The information provided on the website includes a variety of useful materials instructing educators on how to undertake assessment of student learning at UNLV. The website outlines a plan for academic assessment, including definitions and assumptions. Information on general education assessment as well as the peer review process and UNLV academic assessment policy are easily located. Additionally, the department has established a culture of transparency by publishing periodic assessment reports and plans by program, as well as, providing information about the Academic Assessment Committee, members of the committee, and their detailed contact information.

UNLV’s office of academic assessment offers a vast variety of assessment information in a centralized location, becoming this month’s featured website in the category of centralized assessment repository."
