• Assessment at Hamline

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

    • Develop or revise major/program learning outcomes
    • 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)

    Each component is a part of the Assessment Cycle that completes itself (closes the loop) in the last stage when changes are made based on feedback received.

    Hamline University has defined program-level and university-level student learning outcomes. Learn more by visiting the pages below.
