ABOUT US

Our purpose is to promote student learning improvement in higher education, with a focus on program and institution levels.

We explore how thoughtful changes to learning environments can improve learning and how learning assessment can support and document such efforts. We encourage the disaggregation of findings on student learning to answer questions regarding equity in learning for all groups of students.

OUR STORY

Assessment and Learning Improvement

We are a group of assessment professionals and scholars who share a common interest in student learning improvement in higher education. We formed our community in 2017 at a Learning Improvement Summit organized by The Center for Assessment & Research Studies (James Madison University) and the Center of Inquiry (Wabash College). After the 2018 Summit, hosted by Auburn University, we started our first collaborative project: collect and share learning improvement stories.


We invite you to join us in this work.
