St. Olaf Learning Goals Questionnaire (LGQ)

About the LGQ

Administered to incoming first-year students prior to the start of classes, and to the same group of first-years and to graduating seniors in the spring semester, the St. Olaf Learning Goals Questionnaire (LGQ) was developed by a team of faculty and staff to help students reflect on their learning experiences and accomplishments in relation to the learning outcomes (STOGoals) the college has established for all its students. Results are used to help students understand how their learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom fit together, to examine the extent to which students are prepared for the first few years after college, and to enhance academic advising practices and outcomes.
