HLC’s Academy for Assessment of Student Learning

As outlined on the Higher Learning Commission’s webpage, the Assessment Academy is tailored for institutions interested in developing an ongoing commitment to assessing and improving student learning. The Assessment Academy offers each institution personalized guidance in gathering the necessary information and data to survey student learning outcomes, determining goals that should be set for the institution regarding those outcomes, and developing and implementing strategies to achieve those goals.   

The Assessment Academy provides institutions with new ideas and techniques for influencing institutional culture, improving the assessment of student learning and increasing institutional capacity to complete those assessments. Institutions develop a process to regularly test and document effective practices in assessing and improving student learning.  

Wright College completed the Higher Learning Commission's Academy for Assessment of Student Learning in November 2011.
