Marymount California University’s (MCU) Student Achievement website is this month’s NILOA Featured Website. At MCU, the institutional learning outcomes in communication, analysis, decision-making, appreciation of multiple perspectives, and ability to learn from experience inform how students learn and progress through the curriculum. To highlight student achievement, MCU offers assessment data on multiple programs. Included are sample capstone projects conducted by students, internship sites available to students, videos offering student testimonials, information on student experiences through the program, and other quick facts. In addition, the Student Achievement website outlines how MCU works to sustain a culture of learning and achievement which begins with program development, calls for engaging in regular assessment efforts, requires various faculty development opportunities, and culminates with closing the loop. Finally, visitors can find data on student achievement since 2010 when MCU first began to offer four-year degrees. For these reasons, MCU’s Student Achievement website is NILOA’s Featured Website in the category of Creativity.
