Academic Learning Outcomes Assessment (ALOA) Committee
Faculty representatives from each school and Gumberg Library form the Academic Learning Outcomes Assessment (ALOA) Committee.
We provide learning assessment support through consulting, guidance on reports, and workshops (through the Center for Teaching Excellence). Please contact your school representative or CTE if you have questions.
Rubrics to Promote and Assess Student Learning: An Online, Hands-on Workshop (multipass required)
Participants in this workshop will draft a grading guide for an assignment in a course they teach. This guide, or rubric, will simplify the work of grading as well as promote learning by clarifying expectations in advance, and then making feedback useful to students. The AAC&U VALUE rubrics will serve as a resource.
Dimensions of a Duquesne Education
These five dimensions provide a University-wide framework for learning assessment.
