Evidence of Student Learning

The University assessment system uses key program assessments to measure student mastery of the University, professional, and general education learning outcomes.

Reporting Schedule

Key program assessment data reports are currently provided using spreadsheets and bar graphs biannually:

  • Fall semester (December)
  • Full academic year (May)

A new system will provide dashboards for data analysis at any time.

Reporting Scale

A numeric score ranging from 0.00 - 4.00 is generated using key program assessments. Students may receive a score of 4, 3, 2, 1, or 0 for each rubric criterion. Criterion scores are aggregated to create reports at different levels.
