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:
- Growth and learning-oriented
- Equitable and learner-centered
- Ongoing cyclical improvement
- Purposeful and holistic design
- 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.
