The landscape of learning outcomes assessment in Canada

By assessing what students know and can do (i.e.. learning outcomes), postsecondary institutions can document the quality, relevance and value of academic programs, and make evidence-based decisions to improve student outcomes. To understand learning outcomes assessment practices currently used in certificate, diploma and undergraduate degree programs, HEQCO surveyed the provosts and vice-presidents academic of public colleges and universities across Canada in the fall of 2015. This report summarizes the findings.
