College Officials Want Assessment in Learning

KSAL StaffSeptember 8, 2014

Kansas higher education officials have sought an annual assessment of student learning, but a first attempt by schools produced a wide-variety of assessment systems.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Kansas universities used six different assessment systems, while community and technical colleges used eight.

State higher education officials want the assessment to determine how much students are learning at schools.

Kansas Board of Regents member Robba Moran says it makes sense for schools to use different assessments. Moran says the schools have different missions and student bodies. But she says it would be helpful to have more uniformity so policymakers can understand more of how much students are learning.

She hopes this first report will start discussion on how to improve future reports.
