Communicating Learning Outcomes and Student Performance through the Student Transcript
Kenyon, George; Barnes, Cynthia
Journal of Case Studies in Accreditation and Assessment, v1 Sep 2010
The university accreditation process now puts more emphasis on self assessment. This change requires universities to identify program objectives, performance indicators, and areas for improvement. Many accrediting institutions are requiring that institutions communicate clearly to constituents: 1) what learning outcomes were achieved by students, and 2) what level of attainment of these outcomes is required to assure the quality of program offerings. The traditional student transcript does not accomplish this. The proposed structure for academic transcripts clearly states what the learning objectives of the institution and the degree programs are, as well as how the student has met the learning outcomes.
