After reading Chapter 22 of your Assessing Student Learning text and the blog post entitled “Setting Meaningful Benchmarks or Standards,” consider the benchmarks, standards, or targets that are most logically suited to establish “a clear definition of what constitutes successful outcomes” for your own plan to assess learning (Suskie, 2018, p. 288). As you do, remember the purpose of assessment: to interpret and use the results of the assessment effectively and appropriately to promote improvement and accountability. Construct a draft of the component of your project in which you identify appropriate standards for your assessment effort. Explain why they are appropriate and how they are to be applied.

Answer should have the following learning components:

  • Examine strategies for assessing learning outcomes in programs, departments, and institutions.
  • Synthesize findings and how they could be used to inform assessment planning and decision making.
  • Apply knowledge of APA style for references and citations.
  • Develop communications appropriate for the audience.
