CHAPTER 14. NJIT ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT LEARNING
This chapter addresses Standard 14 of the Characteristics of Excellence in Higher Education: Assessment of Student Learning.
Decision-making at NJIT, as MSCHE reviewers have recognized, is driven by continuous assessment of institutional effectiveness at multiple levels, including comprehensive coverage of student learning outcomes. Varied, exemplary, and unique, hallmark assessment practices include the first-of-its-kind electronic storage of student design work in the College of Architecture and Design, the portfolio approach to assess student writing ability in the College of Science and Liberal Arts, and the NJIT university-wide course evaluation system. To unify assessment practices, the university has launched the NJIT Program Review Process. These practices, augmented by a repertoire of educational experiments undertaken in accord with measures advocated by the Voluntary System of Accountability, strengthen student learning assessment at NJIT.
