Student Learning Measures
For the Division of Student Affairs, seven learning outcomes have been identified: responsibility and accountability, interpersonal communication, intrapersonal communication, civic engagement, cultural competency, critical thinking, and leadership and management skills. During the spring of 2010, common measures were developed for each of these outcomes. During 2011-12, these measures will be piloted with results reported on this site at the end of 2012. In addition to these outcomes, we have chosen to include select data from a few departments regarding learning to highlight on this page. For additional information about these indicators, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also view additional learning data in departmental self studies.
Common Learning Outcome Measures
While common learning outcome measures have existed and been utilized since 2011-12, a common electronic tool was not implemented until 2013-14. Results of the rubric utilization are below. More detailed information is available upon request.
Tutoring supervisors use a multi-tiered assessment approach incorporating supervisor observations, evaluations, and feedback of tutor performance. Pre and post tests and self assessments are also used. Improvements are constantly being made in training due to assessment findings. Tutoring at Weber State was certified by NADE in 2011. Through this certification process, a wide variety of assessment indicators are captured. A couple are highlighted below.
Tutee Pass Rate Data Tutee pass rate data is captured for the courses in which the highest concentration of students seek tutoring. As such, this may vary from year to year. Accuplacer and ACT scores are compared to see if students are initially at the same academic level when they first seek tutoring. You can see past tutor pass rate data by clicking here.
Tutor Learning Data The tutoring program examines learning outcomes gained by their tutors on an annual basis. The data presented in this chart are just an example of the wealth of information available concerning tutor learning gains. For more information, please contact Student Affairs Assessment and Research.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) assessment practices are similar to those of tutoring. SI uses a multi-tiered assessment approach incorporating supervisor observations, evaluations, and feedback of tutor performance. SI at Weber State was certified by NADE in 2011. Through this certification process, a wide variety of assessment indicators are captured.
SI Learning Data Supplemental Instruction examines SI leader learning on an annal basis. The data in this chart are just an example of the types of learning data available.
The Student Affairs Division employs over 400 student employees. As part of the employment opportunities available to students, the Division provides a training program that measures intentional learning outcomes. More information on the outcomes can be found at weber.edu/getset. The links below provide summary level information of direct learning as observed by student employee supervisors in the form of a pre/post evaluation.
