Expectations for Assessment: Still Growing

To gain a quick sense of the surveys utilized in higher ed today, check out the Tool Kit: Surveys web page of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment web site.

NILOA is a new (since 2008) site devoted to highlighting assesment of student learning outcomes in higher ed. It is supported by Lumina Foundation for Education, Carnegie Corporation of New York, and The Teagle Foundation. The project is housed at U of Illinois and Indiana U.

The project's purpose statement "Making Learning Outcomes Usable & Transparent" and its sheer existence make a statement about expectations for assessment in higher ed: still growing.
