Purdue University has a learning outcomes assessment process in place that focuses faculty on key elements and principles of effective learning outcomes assessment. The Process involves 1) defining learning outcomes, 2) identifying learning activities aimed at helping students achieve the learning outcome, 3) collecting evidence related to students’ achievement of the learning outcome, 4) determining the extent to which students are achieving the learning outcome, 5) reviewing the assessment evidence to improve student learning, 6) identifying specific changes to help students achieve an acceptable or higher level of the learning outcome, and 7) monitoring the impact of changes on students’ achievement of the learning outcome.
As the pilot project comes to a close, it is important to evaluate the effectiveness of the pilot project within the College Portrait and to disclose the results to the public. All VSA participating institutions are encouraged to report their results; Purdue's report on their pilot experiences is available here. Institutions who have not posted SLO results from one of the three VSA approved value-added pilot measures by the end of September 2012 are required to report their results here.
This university is in the process of collecting and analyzing learning outcomes test results.
