Assessment

How do we know what Loyola students are learning?

As part of our Jesuit Catholic heritage, we are not only educating students in their respective disciplines, but also educating them to become men and women for others.  In accordance with our mission, a Loyola education entails expanding Loyola students' "knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice and faith."  But how do we know that this learning is taking place?

When we engage in assessment, we seek to know more about what our students are learning and how our programs and services are performing.  We recognize that for students, learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom.  Our students are gaining knowledge, skills, and abilities in classrooms, from face-to-face to our "wilderness classroom," and in experiences such as internships and living on-campus.  Thus, it is all the more important to view assessment as an integrated process that takes into account the many diverse settings in which learning takes palce.

This integrated process is reflected at Loyola in assessment efforts both between and within Academic Affairs and Student Development.  It is also reflected in the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy, which provides consultation and resources on assessment across the university.  Our services include:
