Assurance of Learning Committee

The Assurance of Learning Committee (ALC) was established in fall 2012 to provide university-wide leadership and coordination for assessment of student learning activities to ensure the educational outcomes of Wright State University students. The ALC assists with the development and implementation of plans for assessing student learning outcomes in academic, general education, and co-curricular programs and oversees the periodic comprehensive review of academic programs.  

The committee will:

  • Promote engagement in meaningful assessment of student learning activities that reflect good practice, including the substantial participation of faculty, instructional and other relevant staff members.
  • Oversee, in collaboration with the Faculty Senate Core Oversight Committee, the assessment processes for the Wright State General Education Core, Writing Across the Curriculum, and university student learning outcomes.
  • Provide feedback, suggestions, and recommendations to the provost's office regarding the assessment of student learning and program review processes and professional development needs.
  • Establish the calendars and monitor the reporting of assessment of student learning activities as well as a periodic comprehensive review of academic programs.
  • Act as resources in their respective areas to ensure that academic and relevant co-curricular programs have student learning outcome statements, direct and indirect assessment methods, and that faculty and staff review results and take actions to improve student learning.
  • Coordinate university assessment processes with the requirements of the Higher Learning Commission and other accreditation agencies.
  • Provide a forum for sharing information and best practices in assessment of student learning and continuous improvement.
  • Keep the faculty, administrators, and staff in their respective areas well informed regarding the university's assessment of student learning and periodic comprehensive review of academic programs processes.

Membership includes at least one faculty member and one administrator (dean or designee) from each college. The Co-Curricular Subcommittee will include representatives from the Student Affairs, Student Success, and the University Library.
