In alignment with SACSCOC expectations, LSU demonstrates a commitment to the principles of continuous improvement, based on a systematic and documented process of assessing institutional performance with respect to mission in all aspects of the institution. The continuous improvement cycle includes the development of a plan, identification of expected outcomes and associated measures, assessment of the extent to which the outcome has been achieved, and evidence of seeking improvement based on analysis of the findings.
This process is critical in fulfilling the following expectations:
- Sustaining a systematic, on-going assessment of student learning process for all academic degree programs, stand-alone certificates, and integrative learning core courses.
- Demonstrating the use of assessment findings to seek opportunities for improvement in enhancing academic degree programs, stand-alone certificates, and integrative learning core courses.
- Documenting overall evidence of student learning assessment.
