First Theological Degree-Level Student Learning Assessment

Student Learning Assessment

[NOTE: THE 2013-14 STUDENT LEARNING ASSESSMENT PROGRAM IS UNDERGOING REVISION. DETAILS WILL BE POSTED AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE. ]

Assessment of student learning at LTSP is the systematic collection of information about student learning, using the time, knowledge, expertise and resources available, in order to inform decisions about how to improve student learning.

LTSP approaches MAR/MDiv student learning assessments from the progressive expansion of three reference points: the Seminary's mission statement, the strategic planning statement and curriculum objectives.

The Student Learning Assessment Manual is a guide to the assessment of student learning for the faculty, staff, and students at LTSP.  It provides an overview and detailed information for faculty and students, and directions for the use of other documents used in the assessment process.
