Student learning can occur in all corners of higher education institutions. Gaining a better understanding of the learning that occurs outside of the classroom informs and guides improvements to individual student services and programming. Co-curricular assessment also fosters collaboration opportunities across the institution that are grounded in the student voice, student perspective, and overall student experience.
Each academic year, student services and other co-curricular areas execute their co-curricular assessment plans utilizing a variety of assessment methods that include rubrics, surveys, and quizzes. After collecting learning outcomes assessment data in Fall and Spring semesters, results are evaluated to drive improvements. Learn more from our tools and resources below:
