Walden University’s Demonstrating Accountability, Transparency, and Assessment (DATA) website provides a centralized resource for multiple data points across the institution and within departments related to student learning. The website posts the stated learning outcomes for each program, information on student satisfaction, performance indicators, and student self-assessments of their learning. In addition, the website presents information, in a clear, user friendly format on direct and indirect evidence of student learning, other sources of evidence used in continuous improvement, and overviews of how learning outcomes reporting is integrated within the institution. Due to the variety of information presented on student learning and institutional data as well as the clear wording and explanation of learning outcomes processes, Walden University’s DATA website is September’s featured website.
