Institutions of higher education are increasingly being held more accountable for assessing student learning both in and out of their classrooms along with reporting results to their stakeholders. The purpose of this study, which examined assessment of student learning outcomes in undergraduate park and recreation academic programs, was two-fold: 1) to capture a snapshot of the assessment methods being used to measure and evaluate undergraduate student learning in parks, recreation, and leisure studies curricula, and 2) to learn how undergraduate program coordinators perceive the value of a variety of assessment methods. The purpose of assessment, the overall assessment process, assessment methods and challenges in park, recreation, and leisure studies academic programs are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
