Academic Learning Compacts 2006-2007

The Academic Learning Compacts (ALC) are guidelines issued by the State University System requiring each State University in Florida to identify, by academic program, what it is that students will have learned by the end of the baccalaureate degree program, and how that learning will be measured above and beyond course grades.

Each Compact includes statements of the core student learning outcomes in the areas of content/ discipline knowledge and skills, communication skills, and critical thinking skills that program graduates will have adequately demonstrated prior to being awarded the baccalaureate degree.  

Each Compact identifies the corresponding assessment processes used to measure student achievement on each of the core student learning outcomes for the program.  These assessment processes specify: (a) the required courses or other academic equivalents through which all students pursuing the baccalaureate degree are assessed on each outcome, (b) the assessments used in those courses or academic equivalents that correspond to each outcome, and (c) the standards used during the assessments to determine if student work matches the expectations articulated for each outcome.

ALCs answer three basic questions: What will students learn by the end of their academic programs? Have they learned what they have been taught by their professors? How do we measure these quantities?

 

Academic Learning Compacts are meant to account for student achievement in baccalaureate degree programs in the State University System. The purpose of ALCs is to establish policy guidelines and procedures for universities, through their bonds of trustees, to develop and implement Academic Learning Compacts to account for student achievement in baccalaureate degree programs in the State University System.
