Outcomes Assessment (OA): The measurement of learning outcomes. OA examines student demonstrations of the results of learning. The process includes four cyclical steps: 1) teaching and learning, 2) developing questions and gathering information about student learning, 3) analyzing the information and drawing conclusions, and 4) reflecting and planning. It documents the alignment (or dissonance) between the intended learning (as stated in the outcomes) and the actual learning (as demonstrated by the student). The practice of Outcomes Assessment is collaborative and is intended to inform. Its goal is to continually improve student learning.
