Academic Learning Compacts and Related Assessment Processes
In recent years, there has been increased emphasis on the identification and assessment of core student learning outcomes in higher education. The Florida Board of Governors has articulated the importance of student achievement in its strategic planning and accountability processes. Simultaneously, the Board has placed more emphasis on the devolution of authority to the universities, campus-level decision making, and institutional accountability. Accordingly, the Board has determined that universities will develop "Academic Learning Compacts" and related assessment processes to ensure student achievement in baccalaureate degree programs in the State University System.
