NILOA Framework

A goal of the NC State Strategic Plan 2021-2030 is to improve university effectiveness through transformative technologies, cutting-edge processes and actionable data. In order to achieve this goal, the Division of Academic and Student Affairs is dedicated to be consistently and intentionally student-centered by collectively analyzing and looking into the experiences of students across the university. The National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) provides a Transparency Framework that allows universities to demonstrate their processes of assessment in a clear manner.

NILOA Transparency Framework

NC State is pleased to adopt the NILOA Transparency Framework. NILOA notes that the framework “is intended to help institutions evaluate the extent to which they are making evidence of student accomplishment readily accessible and potentially useful and meaningful to various audiences.” More information about the framework can be found on the NILOA website. Institutions in the UNC System are encouraged to adopt this framework, as a recommendation by the Voluntary System of Accountability.
