Engaged Learning Assessment

Engaged Learning Assessment

Assessment of the Engaged Learning University Requirement involves a three-pronged approach that includes faculty and students:

Please note that the next Engaged Learning Assessment cycle will begin during the 2020-2021 academic year. Students will not need to submit their Engaged Learning reflections until then.  

1) Faculty will submit the course syllabus each semester to the Sakai project site entitled Engaged Learning Syllabi, 2) Students/Faculty will enter their Engaged Learning placement/experience data into LOCUS, and 3) Students will respond to a standardized reflection prompt at the end of the semester.

What is the Engaged Learning Assessment?

As a student of an engaged learning course, you are being asked to upload an artifact or reflection from your Engaged Learning course to TaskStream. Your uploaded artifact will be evaluated by a staff/faculty review committee using a common rubric. This assessment project aims to ensure that the Engaged Learning student learning outcomes are being met. Below is the prompt you are to answer for your reflection: 

Loyola University Chicago’s Mission Statement:

“We are Chicago's Jesuit Catholic university- a diverse community seeking God in all things and working to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice, and faith.”

In an effort to assess the Engaged Learning University requirement, we ask all students enrolled in an Engaged Learning course to complete this reflection. Referencing Loyola’s mission statement above, compose a written reflection (at least 2 pages, double-spaced) that connects your in-class and out-of-class experience responding to the following:

  • How did your Engaged Learning experience help you to connect to the mission?
  • How did the Engaged Learning experience in this course impact your personal, intellectual, civic and/or professional development?
