Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment (IE&A) serves as a comprehensive source of information about St. Olaf College. Our mission is to provide data, reports, and research that support institutional planning, strengthen teaching and learning, and promote understanding of the nature and quality of education at St. Olaf.
We work with faculty, staff, administrators, and students throughout the college, and we collaborate with colleagues at other colleges and professional associations.
In 2012, the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) published a case study on assessment at St. Olaf. The September 2020 article linked above is a follow-up to that original case study and describes how St. Olaf’s approach to assessment has evolved since 2012.
