Outcomes Assessment Updates

About Outcomes Assessment Building Block

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.

Outcomes Assessment updates include:

  • Refreshed user interface and powerful new dashboard for the overview and management of evidence collection, goals management, assessment-related Enterprise Surveys, rubrics, and organizations for assessment collaboration.
  • Streamlined implementation that 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.
  • Transition of existing evidence collection processes and data to the updated framework for existing outcomes clients. The old Outcomes Assessment functionality is deprecated.
  • Localization for the standard set of languages that Blackboard Learn provides.
