Outcomes Assessment extracts direct evidence of student learning from Blackboard Learn courses. By collecting student-submitted assignments from existing courses and facilitating a rubric-based secondary evaluation of them, institutions can demonstrate achievement of learning outcomes.
A streamlined implementation process leverages existing Blackboard Learn functionality, including Blackboard Learn user records, courses, and course enrollments. In addition, clients with a Community Engagement license have the option to use the institutional hierarchy for efficient provisioning of privileges, access, and user data relevant to assessment processes.
Integration With Other Modules
Community Engagement and Content Management licenses are strongly encouraged, but not required. Clients who license Outcomes Assessment but do not have Community Engagement will be missing critical Institutional Hierarchy capabilities. Clients who license Outcomes Assessment but do not have Content Management will be missing critical file and report management capabilities.
