Featured Website: Point Loma Nazarene University
Point Loma Nazarene University’s Institutional Assessment webpage provides an in-depth, holistic look at the university’s assessment efforts. The webpage covers three central areas of the institution's assessment practices: institutional, co-curricular, and academic. The institutional assessment section includes links to assessment guidelines, rubrics, and templates for academic programs, reports of its participation with the Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP), in addition to information about its use of LiveText software for documenting student learning through student e-portfolios. The co-curricular section shares information about its program review process through its prioritization template and its approach to student and spiritual development. The academic assessment section details the university’s commitment to assessment through the transparent communication of its mission, student learning outcomes, and assessment plan, among other content, as it pertains to its academic departments, from Art & Design to Clinical Counseling. Given the webpage’s clear and comprehensive presentation of its assessment information, Point Loma Nazarene University is this month’s featured website in the categories of Communication and Centralized Assessment Repository.
