Evidence of Student Learning - Internal: How will the program measure what I have learned?: AIU Online uses rubrics to assess program learning outcomes. Each outcome is directly assessed and represents students' academic achievement. Students' papers and projects are randomly selected for analysis, and then they are scored per the scale below by program chairs / faculty. The data is from the Quarter 1, 2009 period. This assessment demonstrates the link between performance skills and program outcomes.

Rating Scale: 1= Needs Improvement; 2= Meets Expectations; 3= Exceeds Expectations
