Learning Outcomes Assessment is mandated by the Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) for all:
- New program proposals
- Cyclical program reviews
- Program monitoring
Learning Outcomes Assessment should be:
Meaningful- What do you want to know about the achievement of your LOs? Our office can help you create an assessment tool to find out.
Manageable- The expectation is that one to two LOs will be assessed per year. Often existing assessment evidence can be used in LOA.
Carleton is committed to supporting a culture of continuous improvement. Assessment results are yours and they are not reported or shared. Rather, they can be used to start a conversation about your program, as well as inform curricular changes.
