Maximizing student learning through evidence-based assessment

Assessment at CMU...

Student learning outcomes assessment at CMU is defined as the ongoing monitoring of the extent to which students are developing the knowledge, skills, beliefs, and attitudes that are appropriate for graduates of their respective academic programs. Assessment of student learning assists programs in defining course goals and outcomes. Assessment data provides information for faculty development of strong programs, effective curricula, and innovative teaching. In addition, student learning outcomes assessment assists programs, departments, councils, colleges, and the university in accreditation by providing evidence of quality teaching and learning. --Policy on Student Learning Outcomes at CMU
