The Citadel identifies expected outcomes, assesses the extent to which it achieves these outcomes, and provides evidence of improvement based on analysis of the results in its’ educational programs. Assessment of student learning outcomes at The Citadel involves the systematic collection, evaluation, and use of data to improve teaching, institutional effectiveness, student learning, and student development. Educational programs at The Citadel employ a wide array of strategies for assessing student learning outcomes including standardized tests, locally-developed exams, writing assignments with rubrics, capstone experiences, portfolios, observation, interviews and focus groups, course evaluations, and survey instruments. These program assessment measures are supplemented by institutional assessments such as the Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA), Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL), ETS Measure of Academic Progress (MAPP), National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), the National Collegiate Health Assessment, Leadership Writing Assessment, and The Citadel Experience Survey.
The Citadel’s E-Leadership Portfolio is a required four-year campus-wide initiative designed to document principled leadership and assess leadership knowledge, competency, and growth over time. The electronic portfolio also serves as a powerful mechanism for assessing general education learning outcomes, program-level assessment, and informs institutional continuous improvement efforts. The majority of the E-Leadership Portfolio artifacts use the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) VALUE rubrics to assess written communication, critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and quantitative reasoning over time.
