CHEA Award - Student Learning Outcomes

The 2010 CHEA Award for Outstanding Institutional Practice in Student Learning Outcomes has been awarded to Capella U, Portland State U, St. Olaf College, and the U of Arkansas - Fort Smith.

Capella U's work in SLOs is tied to the online university's extensive use of electronic rubrics in its courses. Instructors' scoring with rubrics produces a tremendous amount of data that permits reporting on learning outcomes across courses and whole programs. The institution publishes reports on a Learning Outcomes web page: select a degree from "Program Outcome Reports" in the left column. After a pause of several seconds, graphics will load.

Disclosure statement: I serve as a member of Capella University's research faculty. I have not received any compensation or acknowledgment from the institution concerning my writing about Capella. In fact, I do not discuss my blog or other work with anyone at the institution. (This blog's only monetary reward comes through google.adsense links, which are selected by Google, not by me.)
