Campus Commitment to Assessment of Student Learning

As a reflection of our commitment to the student learning mission of IU Kokomo, the campus community is actively engaged in ongoing, systematic assessment of student learning. This process gives faculty information on how effectively academic programs are meeting their goals for student learning and provides guidance for enhancing those programs. In addition, ongoing, systematic assessment is required for the campus to continue to meet the accreditation standards of the North Central Association/Higher Learning Commission.

The faculty in the various degree programs develop the student learning outcomes for their programs and are responsible for assessing those outcomes. As part of this process, students will be asked to participate in activities such as surveys, standardized exams, or focus groups. In addition, student performance on examinations, quizzes, papers, or other assignments in a course may be used to assess learning outcomes. In all cases, the purpose is to assess the effectiveness of the program as a whole in achieving its student learning goals. So assessment results are aggregated. No individual students or faculty are identified in any assessment report.

Students who have questions about student learning assessment, or are interested in obtaining the results of a program’s assessment of student learning may contact the Dean of the School in which the program resides.
