The Assessment Center facilitates and coordinates student assessments. These assessments include credit for prior learning assessments, external assessments, and faculty assessments.
The Assessment Center works with students who are seeking credits for prior learning based on their experiential knowledge or previous coursework. Students must be enrolled at Alverno to seek CPL and meet eligibility requirements for some CPL assessments. Students can get more information by visiting the Credit for Prior Learning Program page. Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) Assessments
The Assessment Center coordinates some external assessments including a required social interaction assessment for all undergraduate students. This assessment helps students learn more about self assessment and feedback. Feedback is often provided by volunteer assessors from the local business community. External Assessments
The Assessment Center facilitates faculty assessments that are not easily adaptable to the classroom setting or meeting times. The center also provides special accommodations for students who need environment and/or technology setups specific to their learning needs. The center has monitored spaces where students complete these assessments.
