A goal of the NC State Strategic Plan 2011-2020 is to Enhance organization excellence by creating a culture of constant improvement. In order to achieve this goal, the Division of Academic and Student Affairs promotes a culture of assessment, growth, change, and adaptation. The National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment provides a Transparency Framework that allows universities to demonstrate their processes of assessment in a clear manner.
NC State is pleased to adopt the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (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.
