Improving Student and Faculty Success through Comprehensive Learner Records
Technology > Corporate Presentation
In higher education, receiving continuous and real-time feedback of learning is essential for students, faculty and administrators as they strive for success and meet academic goals. To help all students meet their learning goals, educators need to systematically collect and use data to guide instructional decisions in order to guide student growth and achievement. To make the data actionable, they need to be visible to all stakeholders through a structure that supports an ongoing cycle of improvement. This includes collecting data from multiple sources and providing guidance in formulating academic strategies to support lifelong learning and instructional change.
In an effort to address these important aspects of growth and success along the trajectory of learning, comprehensive learner records are an effective approach to demonstrating achievement that transcends individual courses and educational experiences. By providing developmentally relevant feedback to students in real-time, comprehensive learner records promote significant student and faculty ownership of learning goals, creating a stronger sense of purpose and curricular meaning. These, in turn, promote more effective student learning and academic performance. Beyond graduation, comprehensive learner records are exportable and therefore can be shared with potential employers as authenticated evidence of student achievement and verified skills, directly connecting learners to employment opportunities.
