Assurance of Learning Day Resources

EKU's fifth annual Assurance of Learning Day will be held on September 30, 2016. This day provides faculty with the opportunity to discuss student learning in their programs.  Day classes will be dismissed.  (Classes resume at 4 p.m.)

The topics below provide ideas for ways to use the day.  While the day's focus should be on some aspect of student learning assessment and assuring that students are learning, ideally the day will focus upon using data to improve learning.  The structure, topics and activities within in each department are determined by the faculty and chair.
