Faculty-driven department and program assessment plans form the foundation of student learning assessment at Western Washington University. Departments and programs establish student learning outcomes (SLOs) derived from their mission and the University’s strategic plan. These SLOs allow each program to measure and analyze student performance relative to programmatic goals, and to make data-informed programmatic improvements. Student learning assessment at Western is continuous in that it is structured as a cycle or iterative feedback process of ongoing program improvement. Support for student learning assessment is provided by each college, the Office of Survey Research, the Center for Instructional Innovation and Assessment, and the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. Further information on student learning assessment at Western can be found at http://www.wwu.edu/depts/vpue/assessment/.
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; WWU'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.
