Student Learning Outcomes

Student learning outcomes—outcomes that are expected to result from specific inputs, activities, and outputs—represent the end game of Experience Learning, which seeks to enhance student learning in four particular areas:1. Students will value the importance of engaged scholarship and lifelong learning. 2. Students will apply knowledge, values, and skills in solving real-world problems. 3. Students will work collaboratively with others. 4. Students will engage in structured reflection as part of the inquiry process.

The four interrelated QEP Student learning outcomes are directly derived from the QEP mission statement, which calls for “enhancing opportunities for students to learn through actual involvement with problems and needs in the larger community”.

Each student learning outcome is accompanied by a set of benchmarks that are modified from the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) rubrics.  The benchmarks are used to operationalize the learning outcomes and guide the assessment measures.  Assessment of progress on these learning outcomes will include direct and indirect measures.
