In Spring 2012, after a campus-wide consultative process, Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) were adopted which provide a framework for evaluation of how well our students are learning. Through assessment of student learning outcomes, program learning outcomes, and the ILOs we will be able to demonstrate areas of distinction and plan for improvements. Both the Educational Effectiveness Council (sponsored by Academic Affairs) and the Institutional Learning Outcomes Subcommittee (sponsored by the Academic Senate) participate in development and evaluation of educational effectiveness.
The Learning & Assessment at CSUEB page is a work in progress that guides the assessment process. It includes information on what, why and how to assess, the assessment cycle, templates for curriculum maps and rubrics, and links to other assessment resources.
Additional learning and assessment resources are available from a variety of offices on campus, including the Office of Faculty Development and MATS (Media and Technology Support).
