Academic Assessment at Southeast

Levels of assessment

Assessment of student learning occurs at three "levels of analysis". 

  • Micro-level: We assess our students' ability to demonstrate course learning outcomes (CLOs).

  • Mezzo-level:We assess our students' ability to demonstrate program and general education learning outcomes (PLOs and GELOs).

  • Macro-level:We assess our students' ability to demonstrate institutional learning outcomes (ILOs).
