2017 NILOA Provost Survey Preview

We are pleased to announce the latest edition of NILOA Provost Survey. NILOA's Provost Survey, which takes place every three years, is a way for NILOA to engage, listen and learn from administrators about practices and activities related to assessing student learning on campuses. NILOA believes that successful implementation of learning outcomes assessment is a conversation that cannot take place without the involvement of higher education administrators. Please view the information below to learn more.

To Complete the Survey: Provosts or Chief Academic Officers at accredited two- and four-year institutions were sent an email invitation to complete the NILOA 2017 Provost Survey. Each invitation includes a unique institutional URL to access the survey. If you do not have the email invitation and the URL, please go here and click on the “Don’t know your Login ID”. Once the Provost/CAO email is entered we will use your address to search our records and to send log in information directly to the Provost/CAO.
The Provost/CAO may elect to forward the unique institutional URL to a designee to complete the survey.

As part of our own improvement process, NILOA hosts a Provosts' Breakfast during the Annual Meeting’s opening day, where discussion takes place in regards to survey content and additional feedback from provosts about assessment. Click here to read about the 2017 Provosts Breakfast.

The 2009 report, "More than you think, Less than we need: learning outcomes assessment in American Higher Education.", showcases findings from NILOA's first survey of chief academic officers. Contrary to what observers think, findings from a national study show that gathering information about what undergraduates learn during their studies is commonplace in most US colleges and universities.
