Learning Outcomes Assessment in American Higher Education

Friday, December 4, 2009

12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

College of Education Room 242

Refreshments will be served.

Documenting what undergraduate students learn, know, and can do is of growing interest. The National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA), established in 2008, seeks to discover and disseminate ways that academic programs and institutions can productively use assessment data internally to inform and strengthen undergraduate education, and externally to communicate with policy makers, families and other stakeholders. The speakers will discuss the NILOA national survey report, “More Than You Think, Less Than We Need: Learning Outcomes Assessment in American Higher Education,” the NILOA Web review of over 700 institutional Web sites, and the NILOA study on regional accreditation’s influence on student learning outcomes assessment.

Mark your calendars for these Spring 2010 Higher Education Collaborative Seminars.
