NILOA Transparency Framework

What is the NILOA Transparency Framework?

The National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) Transparency Framework provides guidance for how institutions can use their websites to make assessment evidence more visible.  The NILOA Transparency Framework website can be accessed for additional information.

Why is WSSU participating in the NILOA Transparency Framework?

We want to provide an easily accessible way for stakeholders to understand how assessment is being conducted, and how data are being used to make improvements, at WSSU.  In addition, participation in the NILOA Transparency Framework helps us satisfy portions of the College Portrait Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA), an initiative of public 4-year universities to provide clear, accessible, and comparable information on the undergraduate student experience.
