Assessment and Accreditation
The Higher Learning Commission places a great deal of emphasis on assessment of student learning outcomes. Their 2003 and 2007 statements outline the importance of assessing student learning and its linkage to accreditation. HLC has endorsed guidelines Committing to Quality: Guidelines for Assessment and Accountability to help institutions to set clear goals for student achievement, regularly gather and use evidence that measures performance against those goals, report evidence of student learning, and continuously work to improve results.
