  • Learning Outcomes: A clear focus for student achievement.
  • Curriculum Maps: A clear scope and sequence of instruction and assessment for the learning outcomes.


  • Key Program Assessments: Measure the mastery attainment of university, professional program, and general education learning outcomes. 
  • Evidence of Student Learning: Data is reported at the university, college, department, and program levels to inform continuous improvement. 
  • Program Reports: Programs complete annual reports and five-year reviews to inform future direction and improvements.  
  • Closing the Loop: Faculty collaborate together to review program reports and take action to make program improvements accordingly.
  • Cocurricular Assessment: Activities outside of normal class that are aligned with ORU outcomes and assessed by faculty.
