Programs for Assessment of learning outcomes
The assessment of learning outcomes at the program level has been a topic of international interest as a method for quality assessment and ongoing program quality enhancement. Intentionally assessing your own program level learning outcomes can be of great benefit, as can effective and well planned assessment, to ensure that students learn the most important skills, ideas, attitudes, and values of the discipline or profession. Institutions can use these analyse to help meet their mission and strengthen arguments for increased funding or for allocation of resources. The information from assessing program level learning outcomes may help satisfy the requirements of accrediting and funding agencies, will inform various accountability-driven decisions, and recognize time and resources spent on learner engagement strategies that align to learning outcomes and assessment.
