Student Learning Outcomes
WSSU Student Learning Outcomes
Winston-Salem State University has seven student learning outcomes: Critical Reading, Critical Thinking, Information Literacy, Oral Communication, Quantitative Literacy, Scientific Literacy, and Written Communication. WSSU's goal is to incorporate and assess the seven student learning outcomes across the curriculum as well as in co-curricular activities. Data for courses and co-curricular activities mapped to a WSSU student learning outcome are submitted through an online survey. Units are also encouraged to report and store additional information in Nuventive Improve (TracDat), the university's assessment management system.
Data Collection for WSSU Student Learning Outcomes
Each semester, instructors who teach courses mapped to an institutional learning outcome are expected to apply the corresponding SLO rubric to a course assignment/artifact/activity. At this time, instructors report course-level rubric data through an online survey. Co-curricular activities mapped to institutional learning outcomes are also invited to submit rubric data through the online survey.
The data collection for Spring 2019 is now open. All General Education courses being taught in spring 2019, as well as co-curricular activities that assess student learning outcomes, are required to submit data.
