USLO Assessment

Washburn University assesses five USLOs: Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT), Communication (COM), Global Citizenship, Ethics and Diversity (GED), Information Literacy and Technology (ILT), and Quantitative and Scientific Reasoning (QSR). Each USLO is assessed on a three-year rotation through course-embedded general education measures, and one measure targeted towards junior- and senior-level students. Course-embedded USLO individual student ratings are collected for approved General Education courses according to the cycle below. Each course has its own specific objectives, which will vary in number between courses, but all courses include a student summary score pertaining to the students’ overall standing with regards to the course USLO.
