The University of Georgia The Community

Page 3

The Division of Student Affairs enhances the learning environment for students by stimulating the learning process, integrating in-class and out-of-class experiences, promoting an environment conducive to growth and discovery, and facilitating intellectual, spiritual, social, occupational, physical, cultural, and emotional development. To facilitate learning for UGA students, we identified areas to promote student growth and development, which are integrated throughout the Division. Students who engage in our programs and services experience structured curricula that advance their knowledge in the key areas of: Leadership, Intercultural Competence, Cognitive Development, Interpersonal Skills, Self-Esteem, Collaboration, Healthy Behavior and Social Responsibility. UGA also offers a highlyregarded Honors Program and ample opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in research projects with premier faculty. Students can pursue educational experiences around the world by participating in one of our many study abroad and exchange programs.

The University of Georgia Student Experiences and Perceptions

Page 4

Students who are actively involved in their own learning and development are more likely to be successful in college. Colleges and universities offer students a wide variety of opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to become engaged with new ideas, people, and experiences. Institutions measure the effectiveness of these opportunities in a variety of ways to better understand what types of activities and programs students find the most helpful.

CLICK HERE for examples of how UGA evaluates the experiences of its students.

In addition, institutions participating in the VSA program measure student involvement on campus using one of four national surveys. Results from the survey are not yet available.


The University of Georgia Student Learning Outcomes

Page 5

All colleges and universities use multiple approaches to measure student learning. Many of these are specific to particular disciplines, many are coordinated with accrediting agencies, and many are based on outcomes after students have graduated. In addition, those institutions participating in the VSA measure increases in critical thinking, analytic reasoning, and written communication using one of three tests.

Student Learning Assessment at UGA

The purpose of assessing student learning outcomes at the University of Georgia is to provide a strong base of evidence to inform the continuous improvement of our academic programs. Each undergraduate major has defined learning outcomes and established an ongoing process to assess those outcomes and use the results to improve the program. Departments report on these activities on a 3-year cycle, and the reports are evaluated by a review team of faculty during the course of a 7-year program review of the department and its programs. For general education, the University has defined outcomes for core curriculum areas as well as defined outcomes for general education abilities that are embedded throughout the four-year curriculum. Like most large institutions, UGA uses a multi-pronged approach to assess general education learning, including focused assessment projects, surveys of undergraduate students, program-level measures, capstone projects, and standardized assessment instruments.

Pilot Project to Measure Core Learning Outcomes

Results from the pilot project using one of the three learning outcomes tests are not yet available.
