Key Outcome #3: Student Learning

Vision Project work in student learning is focused on strengthening campus-level assessment and finding ways to compare student learning among states. Though the work is challenging, being able to assess and compare student learning will improve teaching and help campuses not only identify problem areas but understand how to solve them.
