The Learning Outcomes Assessment webpage at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign (UIUC) is NILOA’s September 2020 Featured website! Overseen by the Council for Learning Outcomes Assessment (C-LOA), a cross-campus group of faculty charged with monitoring and supporting assessment work on campus, the website shares general education learning outcomes, program assessment, co-curricular assessment, Illinois student learning outcomes, and resources and workshops.
Included with each of the institution-wide student learning outcomes are data snapshots (for example click here) of institutional progress towards and attainment of shared learning outcomes. Further, each of the general education learning outcomes include further definition coupled with an institutional process timeline for implementation. Current program assessment and past program assessment activities are readily available, along with resources for co-curricular assessment including templates, examples, and planning resources. Various interactive resources and workshops – from advice for writing learning goals and assessment plans to strategies to use assessment evidence – are summarized for different groups, cohorts of students, and compared with their peer institutions or programs. For the plethora of available resources coupled with information on learning outcomes, UIUC’s Learning Outcomes Assessment webpage is the September 2020 NILOA Featured Website in Centralized Assessment Repository.
