Institution-wide assessment provides a framework for student learning assessment at Cleary University. To ensure the quality of our students’ experiences, we engage in ongoing, systematic and integrated efforts to better understand and improve learning. This is what we mean by student learning assessment. Others may refer to this concept as evidenced-based learning.
In any case, student learning assessment is the ongoing process of:
- defining clear, measurable learning goals
- ensuring that students engage in sufficient learning experiences to achieve these goals
- gathering evidence to determine how well student learning matches our expectations
- using the results to validate or improve learning.
