1 Assur ance of Learning at UAB Collat School of Business Here are 10 things that you should know about our Assurance of Learning program: 1. What is Assurance of Learning? Assurance of Learning (AoL) or Learning Outcomes Assessment (LOA) is the systematic collection, review, and use of information about educational programs undertaken for the purpose of improving student learning and development. The goal for these assessments is to achieve continuous improvement in student learning and achievement. 2. How does this AoL program benefit our students? To achieve our learning objectives, we must deploy high quality teachers in the classrooms and this benefits students directly. Also, we assess students in order to assure ourselves that students are learning. We enhance student success by continuously finding innovative ways to improve student learning and achievement. 3. Is the Assurance of Learning (AoL) program required for accreditation? Yes. AoL is a major requirement for accreditation by both the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). 4. What do the AACSB standards require us to do in our AoL program? AACSB Standards 15 and 16 sets guidelines for AoL programs whereby the school uses a well documented, systematic process to develop, monitor, evaluate and revise the substance and delivery of the curricula of degree programs and to assess the impact of the curricula on learning. 5. What do we actually measure to assess student learning? AACSB requires the use of direct (course embedded) measures rather than the use of surveys (indirect measures). Direct measures can be objective tests or other demonstrations of the mastery of skills, knowledge and abilities in the general curriculum or business specific areas. For course embedded measures, the work of individual students (not student teams) is to be used to assess student outcomes,. (Exception: assessing teamwork as a learning goal). A student s course grade is not sufficient to measure achievement of the specific learning goal and program objectives. Page 1 of 9
