Assessment for Student Learning
Saint Paul College is committed to improving student learning through assessment and evaluation of student learning at the co-curricular, course, program, and college levels. This webpage provides an overview of student learning at Saint Paul College and provides resources for faculty and staff as we continue to develop the College’s culture of assessment.
We are using the
Transparency Framework to guide how we share information about the components of our assessment initiatives. A summary of our learning assessment milestones from recent months, as well as goals for future months, can be seen in the following timelines:

Program Learning Outcomes
Program learning outcomes are developed by faculty and Program Advisory Committee members to ensure graduates have learned what they need to know in order to be successful in their career or further their educational goals. Program learning outcomes are included on each program’s
Program Requirement Guide.
Course-level outcomes are approved by Saint Paul College’s Academic Affairs and Standards Council. They are archived and available as part of each course outline by semester and subject. The link above course outlines from 1998 to the present.
The Assessment Academy
Saint Paul College is a member of the Higher Learning Commission’s Assessment Academy. The institution attended its first roundtable in summer 2017. The College has an active cross-functional Assessment of Student Learning project team that is moving assessment work forward.
