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.


If you would like to discuss ways TLC can better support Marian faculty and student affairs educators in their assessment efforts, please contact any of the following TLC members:
