Institutional Learning Outcomes

AMU and APU students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in the following learning areas upon completion of any academic program in any discipline:

  • Applied learning is used by students to demonstrate what they can do with what they know.
  • Intellectual skills are used by students to think critically and analytically about what they learn, broadening their individual perspectives and experiences.
  • Specialized knowledge is the knowledge students demonstrate about their individual fields of study.
  • Broad knowledge transcends the typical boundaries of students in the first two years of higher education and encompasses all learning in broad areas through multiple degree levels.
  • Civic learning is that which enables students to respond to social, environmental and economic challenges at local, national and global levels.
  • Digital Information Literacy is concerned with responsibly, safely, ethically, effectively and efficiently accessing, evaluating, collaborating, organizing, and distributing information in the digital world.  It includes using tools, technologies, techniques, and best practices, to develop responsible and safe consumers and communicators of information in the digital information world to support research and to solve real world problems.

For more information regarding APUS' Institutional Learning Outcomes please visit APUS' catalog: Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment.

With the use of various assessment tools and rubrics within the classroom we are able to capture a snapshot of student achievement in reaching APUS' Institutional Learning Outcomes.  Signature assignments, generally in the final course of a student’s program, are used to assess students’ proficiency in meeting our institutional learning outcomes.  In order to meet our standards a student must show at least 85% proficiency. The below charts show combined results of Associate, Bachelor, and Master level students at APUS.
