Using the NILOA Transparency Framework as a guide, Marian University seeks to collect and use meaningful assessment data to better promote student learning in the curriculum and co-curriculum. To support faculty and student affairs educators in their assessment efforts, the Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC) has created this Assessment Resources site. Here, you will find links to: (a) available books and ebooks through the Mother Theresa Hackelmeier Memorial Library; (b) articles, papers, and reports; (c) online courses and webinars; and (d) podcasts, blogs, and speeches. This site also contains helpful resources to support program-level assessment planning, a video tutorial and guides to help educators set up outcomes and rubrics in Canvas, and much more.
