Assessment of Student Learning – Tools and Methods
College Hall 410A
DISCLAIMER: This data in this section is fictitious and does not, in any way, represent any of the programs at Gallaudet University. This information is intended only as examples.
Shows if targets – the desired level of performance (level of satisfaction, productivity, efficiency, student performance) for each outcome – were achieved
Each SLO should be assessed using at least one direct method (see chart below for more information). Try to use more than one measure to demonstrate that students have achieved the expected learning outcomes, as that will give you a more balanced picture of your unit/program. Also, multiple sources of evidence that support the same conclusions add validity to any decisions you make about improvements to your program/unit.
NOTE: There are times when one assessment tool could measure more than one outcome (e.g., a survey [indirect] with questions related to several outcomes or a capstone experience [direct] assessing critical thinking and presentation skills).
*= can mean either individual students or representative samples of students
