• Learning Outcomes Assessment

    The purpose of learning outcomes assessment at Hamline University is to ensure that our mission and values are realized in what our graduating students know, value, and can do. To affirm that these remain the goals of learning assessment at Hamline, the Assessment Standards were adopted and shared by the Provost's Office. With continued support of the Committee on Learning Outcomes Assessment, these standards are intended to guide faculty and staff through program-level assessment to promote quality, viability, and effectiveness, and, in turn, university-level outcomes assessment.

    Reporting Review Cycle by Program and Year

    The Hamline University Learning Outcomes Assessment Framework is comprised of the following steps:

    • Align/connect learning outcomes with University learning outcomes where appropriate
    • Develop assessment measures (tools and expectations) and assessment timeline
    • Implement assessment activities, document activities and dates completed
    • Collect assessment data; document results & findings; disseminate, present and archive data
    • Analyze results in timely and meaningful way; determine what changes or improvements are called for
    • Make changes and improvements based on results and the document (close the loop)
