How St. Olaf Departments and Programs Assess Student Learning

St. Olaf departments and programs have used a wide array of instruments to gather evidence of student learning in majors, concentrations, conversations, and other academic programs.  Some departments have developed their own approaches, while others have made use of nationally-normed instruments.
