Northland College faculty are responsible for defining intended learning outcomes (ILOs) for each of the courses that they teach. When appropriate, courses should also address learning outcomes associated with the College’s general education program or with specific majors or minors. All intended learning outcomes for a course should be identified in the course syllabus.
In addition, full-time faculty members are responsible for completing and documenting at least two course-level assessments each semester, or four per year. For courses that are in the general education program, at least one of those assessments should address a general education learning outcome.
Course assessment forms; learning outcomes for the general education program, majors, and minors; and assessment guides and resources are available on the faculty’s Academic Assessment site.
