Learning Outcomes Assessment at the UMD Libraries

Learning Management System

The Learning Outcomes Steering Committee (LOASC) coordinates the Libraries' assessment program. To facilitate data-gathering and sharing, the LOASC created a space in Canvas, UMD's learning management system. Here librarians can post their unit- and course-level learning outcomes and assessment data, find resources to aid them in writing learning outcomes and developing assessment tools, and ask their colleagues for feedback and suggestions. 

Support for librarians

‚ÄčIn addition to the resources made available in the Canvas space, the LOASC also provided support to librarians in the following ways: 

  • Meetings with each unit to provide an overview of the process and answer questions specific to that unit
  • Group workshops and one-on-one consultations
  • LibGuide on writing learning outcomes 
  • Reflection and sharing at end of year instruction forum
