Assurance of Learning

The Smith School is committed to student learning and continuous improvement, which we call Assurance of Learning (AoL).

For each degree program, faculty have identified a set of student learning objectives and meaningful, measurable and curriculum-relevant assessments to capture the data around student mastery. To view the learning objectives for each program, click on the links below.

Data collection and reporting is a requirement for faculty teaching AoL-designated courses. Each year, student learning data from all AoL courses is pooled and sent to the designated faculty oversight committees, who use the information to identify necessary curricular and/or programmatic changes or improvements.
