Welcome to the University of Rhode Island Office of Student Learning, Outcomes Assessment, and Accreditation (SLOAA) home page. SLOAA's mission is to promote student success and achievement through greater accountability for student learning, and support a cycle of outcomes assessment and continuous program improvement.
This website provides outcomes assessment information developed at URI, as well as nationally and internationally. If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail us.
Each month this summer, read something new on assessment written by a URI graduate student who just started learning assessment a year ago.

National Survey of Student Engagement Participation was Through the Roof!
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), an online survey offered to URI freshmen and seniors two years at URI, was back again this spring, 2013! Overall, 1.6 million students at more than 620 institutions were invited to participate in the survey.
Our students did an amazing job with survey participation! Approximately 30% of URI freshmen and seniors gave feedback on their experiences at URI, which is greater than the average of similar sized institutions (see graph above). In raw numbers, we had 661 freshmen and 876 seniors participate. Congrats Rhody Rams!

The due date for proposals has passed, but if you are interested in applying for a mini-grant, please call: 874-9503 or email: email@example.com.
