Assessment of Student Learning

The assessment of student learning is an ongoing, faculty-led process of inquiry that leverages evidence to improve our courses, degree programs, and general education curriculum.

The Center for Teaching Excellence works to support, enable, and promote meaningful assessment within courses, degree programs, and the general education curriculum, the KU Core. Primarily, we work with departments through direct consultation, workshops, and stipend-supported programs that enlist faculty in long-term collaborations with our support staff.

If you are here for resources about course-level assessment, consider visiting our Teaching Resources or Portfolio Gallery, where you can view many “home grown” examples from your colleagues right here at KU.

If you are looking for information about KU’s new general education assessment process, visit the KU Core website. To read more about how assessment relates to KU’s accreditation and your department’s role in this important process, visit the provost office’s website.

For more information and resources about degree level assessment and the upcoming February 2023 deadline for annual reporting at the undergraduate and graduate levels, please keep reading. We’ve built this page as a one-stop shop for faculty working on degree-level assessment.  

At any point, please feel free to email Joshua Potter, Associate Director of Student Learning and Analytics, with your questions or requests for consultation.
