The University of Arkansas at Little Rock College of Education is fully accredited by National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and has maintained that accreditation since 1971. The College of Education (COE) at UALR prepares â€śLeaders in Learningâ€ť through learner-centered teaching. Accordingly, assessment of learners and their learning has traditionally played, and continues to play, a very strong and systemic role. Assessment, that is, â€śgathering and discussing information from multiple sources in order to develop a deep understanding of what students know, understand, and can do with their knowledge as a result of their educational experiences,â€ť (Huba and Freed, 2000) is paramount to this process.
The COE uses assessment data gathered across course, program, college, and institutional levels to facilitate and guide program and college-level decisions. Ultimately, assessment results are used to improve subsequent learning.
