WSU Examples of Senior-level Direct Measures

An effective system of assessing student achievement includes direct measures at the senior level, near graduation, providing information about what students are able to achieve at the end of the program. WSU expects programs to regularly collect senior-level direct measures of student learning, providing programs with information about learning outcomes achievement and experiences as students are completing the curriculum. Direct measures come in many forms and WSU encourages programs to choose measures that fit their needs and disciplinary expectations.
