We're excited that the learning gains our students demonstrated through these surveys and studies, combined with our assessment practices, led the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) to use Augustana as an example and highlight us in a publication!
Resources for gathering and using course level feedback:
We use The IDEA Center.
Here is a Powerpoint presentation about using The IDEA Center SRI at Augustana.
Would you like more ideas on how to use your feedback from The IDEA Center? Check out their blog.
How do the IDEA center objectives align with college student learning outcomes or Program goals? Here is an idea of how to start and a course level to college level template as well as a program level to college level template.
The IDEA Center process should not be the only method for gathering evidence on teaching and learning. We can assist with developing other methods of assessing student learning.
