Assessing Student Learning Efficiency with PASL
The Program Assessment of Student Learning (PASL) is an assessment and evaluation reporting tool. In addition to the standard Outcome-Assessment-Results-Decisions reporting, the PASL also measures 13 characteristics of a sound assessment/evaluation design. These individual characteristics, each represented by rubric factors, are categorized into three areas: A- Faculty Involvement in Program Assessment B- Assessment/Evaluation Design and Data Management Practices, and C- Continuous Improvement through Inquiry-Based Decision Making Practices. Data collected over the past eight years will be shared. Results demonstrate the effect of intervention on the improvement of practice. Connections to faculty development and accreditation will be presented and discussed.
