Learning Outcomes Reports

To ensure student learning, the faculty of Louisiana State University implement specific learning outcomes assessments for each degree program. Departments develop an annual Learning Outcomes Report that indicates the degree of studentsí achievement of core outcomes, explains how analysis of results has led to changes in courses or pedagogies, and indicates which parts of the curriculum appear to be working well. Below are examples of recent Learning Outcomes Reports.
