Student success is at the heart of our mission.
Welcome to the Ashford University Office of Assessment Strategies & Instructional Systems (OASIS). By fully integrating assessment practices into the fabric of instructional development, Ashford University provides a consistent and interconnected approach to the development, alignment, and analysis of student learning outcomes.
Assessing Student Success
Ashford University is committed to continuous improvement to teaching and learning through learning outcomes assessment. Learning outcomes describe the knowledge, skills, and values expected of students at the course, program and institution level. Ashford utilizes an array of indirect and direct measures to analyze course and program effectiveness as it relates to student success. Assessment results are used to support curricular, programmatic, and institutional improvements with the purpose of enhancing students' learning
Ashford University is dedicated to providing students an integrated learning system that includes broader knowledge, skills, values, and diverse learning experiences that can be applied to real-world experiences and social constructs. The overarching goal is to prepare students for work, life, and citizenship in today's complex and global environment.
Quality and Instruction
Commensurate with Ashford University's mission to provide "high quality learning opportunities and degree programs," multiple teaching, learning, and assessment initiatives are underway that support course development, faculty training, and other instructional improvements to the learning environment.
