Strategic Assessment of Institutional Learning (SAIL)

SAIL is an action research process for assessing TRU’s institutional learning outcomes using faculty communities of practice, course-embedded assignments, and shared institutional rubrics.

SAIL informs potential options for assessing student achievement of TRU’s institutional learning outcomes as part of a model for continuous learning outcomes and assessment and curricular review.

SAIL is aligned with TRU’s six principles for learning outcomes and assessment:

  1. Growth and learning-oriented
  2. Equitable and learner-centered
  3. Faculty-driven
  4. Ongoing cyclical improvement
  5. Purposeful and holistic design
  6. Reflexive approach to learning

The Strategic Assessment of Institutional Learning: Practitioner Handbook documents the action research project, including the findings and future considerations, and provides a step-by-step guide for implementing a SAIL initiative within an educational setting.
