Assessment and Outcomes

Assessment at Saint Louis University — Madrid involves an ongoing process of measuring attainment of student learning outcomes (SLOs) by:

  • collecting information about SLOs at the individual course, program and degree levels
  • extracting information about SLO attainment through multiple types of evidence (exams, papers, portfolios, reports, interviews, etc.)
  • evaluating the impact of instruction, resources and activities on SLOs
  • making the necessary adjustments based on the above information

SLU-Madrid is committed to excellent and innovative educational practices. In order to maintain quality academic offerings and to conform to relevant accreditation requirements, we regularly assess our teaching, services and programs for evidence of student learning outcomes achievement. For this purpose we keep on file representative examples of student work from all courses and programs such as: assignments, papers, exams, portfolios and results from student surveys, focus groups and reflexive exercises.
