Institutions of higher education are increasingly asked to show the impact they have on students and the larger community. In response to these and other demands, institutions engage in assessment of student learning to provide evidence of their value - yet most of the evidence gathered goes unused. This presentation, informed by institutional examples and the work of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA), examines how institutions are engaging with evidence of student learning to improve their curriculum and to meet demands of accountability. The presentation will focus on a variety of conceptualizations of the use of evidence and unpack what it means to “close the assessment loop.”
