Iowa State University Learning Outcomes

ISU’s commitment to enhancing student learning and excellent teaching is a central part of its land grant heritage. Iowa State has published outcomes and assessment processes in every college at all levels, and draws on assessment results to understand students’ knowledge, understanding, and ability to use their knowledge in the workplace. Student outcomes assessment is interwoven into student course evaluation, program review, accreditation, curriculum development, and internal academic standards. The University’s efforts to enhance student learning include several distinctive and progressive initiatives. ISU is a nationally recognized leader in Learning Communities, which have bolstered student academic success. In addition, we are implementing an innovative, four-year communication curriculum for undergraduates, ISUComm, which sets a new standard for communication education.
