Assessment in eLumen
SLO assessment data are collected in "Scorecards" and reports are completed as “Action Plans” in eLumen. eLumen is designed to collect direct student-level assessment data across all course sections. It is important to plan for this when your course is scheduled for assessment. The Assessment and Planning Office will create “scorecards” with approved course and education learning outcomes for you according to your department’s 5-year course assessment schedule, which is maintained as a shared document. Please contact the office prior to your scheduled assessment.
eLumen is role-based. “Faculty” complete assessment Scorecards for their individual course sections and a “Course Coordinator” identified by the department completes a single course Action Plan (CAR/GEAR) based on aggregate data across sections. “Department Coordinators” (chairs) and “Division Coordinators” (deans) review submitted Action Plans. Assessment data and Action Plans remain housed in eLumen for future access and review. PURs remain in eLumen as well.
