Student Learning Assessment

Program-Level Student Learning Outcomes Assessment

Webster University Assessment Process 2.0


During this academic year, Marissa Cope, the Assessment and Accreditation Analyst in the FDC, will work directly with programs to develop a standing five-year assessment plan by May 2020. This plan will be required from all programs and will include the following:
1. Program-level learning outcomes (which will be reviewed and potentially updated during this process)
2. Curriculum map aligning outcomes with student opportunities for learning (e.g., courses)
3. Assessment methods for each LO including a) what artifacts will students create to demonstrate their learning, b) what tools (e.g., a rubric) will be used to evaluate the artifacts to determine the extent to which the outcomes were achieved, and c) how this data will be collected and aggregated from all faculty in all locations teaching related courses
4. The process for sharing/disseminating the plan to all faculty in the program.

Once finalized, these assessment plans should be revisited periodically to ensure they are accurately representing the assessment process for each program.
