You may have noticed that we recently added a “sum” calculation option for Evaluated Results in Outcomes. This new functionality allows you to calculate outcome achievement in aggregate by summing the number of students who have achieved each level in the institutional scale across all assessments.
The Sum of it All
Summing the results of all assessments may be appropriate when an outcome is being assessed in multiple ways or over multiple learning experiences to reach a summative result.
This feature on its own provides your institution with more options for calculating outcome achievement, but it also unlocks our ability to bring new data sources into Outcomes. We’re working on a direct integration that imports course-level student outcome data from Canvas for instant aggregation at the program, school/college, or institution level—without asking faculty members to treat assessment documentation as an additional task. Keep an eye on your inbox for news about that development; and let us know how we can help you unlock existing institutional student learning data on your campus by submitting an idea to our product team.
