Outcomes Assessment

Why engage in assessment activities? Helping students learn through education abroad is at the heart of the work of Forum members. Assessment provides an understanding of what students are learning and how and where their learning is taking place. With this information we can change our work to improve learning outcomes and deploy resources effectively. The mission of The Forum and its Outcomes Assessment and Research Committee is to assist administrators and faculty in identifying, assessing, and fostering positive outcomes in students’ academic, intercultural, and personal development through education abroad.
