Learning Outcomes Assessment is the central place to find information on student learning assessment, planning, and related activities conducted at the University of Vermont. It provides quick access to summary information, forms and SharePoint sites relating to the general education program and annual assessment reports for accredited and non-accredited degree programs. It also provides a range of resources for UVM faculty, staff, and students that are involved in student learning assessments. Information relating to the Academic Program Review process can be found on this website.


Our purpose behind these resources is to empower faculty, staff, and students to conduct student learning assessments and utilize those assessments to improve learning outcomes at the University of Vermont.
