Academic Assessment and Evaluation

Assessment of Student Learning

Wilson College is committed to implementing a comprehensive, college-wide student learning assessment program. The mission of the student learning assessment program is to ensure a Wilson College culture of continuous academic enhancement that is driven by student learning and development.


Institutional Learning Goals (ILGs)



In addition to other measurement tools, these goals can be assessed by utilizing the Institutional Learning Goals' Rubrics. For ease of use, the following rubrics are broken down by Competency and provided in a Word document. These are the same as what appears in the above ILG Competencies and Rubrics PDF.


ILG Assessment in Canvas

All academic assessment will be done using Canvas. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research will no longer provide or collect assessment spreadsheets. All academic assessment, begining spring 2019, will be accomplished using Canvas. For further information, please contact James D'Annibale ( James is prepared to assist any faculty member in getting set-up to use Canvas and train them on this easy process.



Institutional Learning Goals' worksheets are provided to help faculty transition to using Canvas.


Academic Assessment Templates

Program/Major Reflection Reports are guidelines to identify the results of the assessments, improve teaching and learning, and inform planning and resource allocation decisions.



Additional resources are offered to complement the previous information.

Student Course Evaluations

Wilson College students evaluate courses using the Course Evaluation online system through Campus Labs. This system provides students a way to confidentially rate their learning experience at Wilson.

Generally, students will be given the opportunity to evaluate their courses during the last two weeks of each semester. Because of the time compression of shorter semesters, J-term and summer course evaluation scheduling will vary slightly.
