Full-cycle assessment means the complete assessment of a single learning outcome. The process begins by identifying a student learning outcome, aligning that outcome with a meaningful assessment measure, collecting and analyzing data from that assessment, making meaning from the results, and using the results to make informed and specific programmatic decisions or changes. Documenting full-cycle assessment means reporting on the components of the assessment from outcome to implemented action.
*Please note* Over the 5 –year reporting period you must:
a) submit an example of fully cycle direct assessment for each student learning outcome during that time frame
b) you must submit at least one example of full cycle assessment each year, even if your program has fewer than 5 student learning outcomes.
