Why are we conducting regular assessment of the University Learning Outcomes in Disciplinary Lens classes?
University Learning Outcomes (ULOs) are the “glue” that holds academic and social learning together in the undergraduate curriculum. Assessment at the course level focuses our attention on the outcomes and lets us answer the essential ULO questions:
- To what extent are our students learning the skills, knowledge, and habits of mind that make up our outcomes?”
- What do we do to support that learning – and what might we do to continually work to improve learning?
- What supports do we need to enhance learning?
