WOU’s undergraduate learning outcomes (ULO’s)
ULO Assessment

WOU assesses our Undergraduate Learning Outcome’s through our General Education curriculum. The General Education Learning Outcomes (GELOs) are aligned to the Undergraduate Learning Outcomes.

  1. The GELO Intellectual foundations and breadth of exposure is aligned with Quantitative Literacy and Written Communication
  2. The GELO Critical thinking is aligned with Inquiry and Analysis
  3. The GELO Citizenship is aligned with Diversity and Global Learning
  4. The GELO Multidisciplinary learning is aligned with Integrative Learning

The General Education program will convene a campus-wide professional learning community to examine General Education outcomes aligned to the appropriate ULOs. Many Program Learning Outcomes are also aligned with our Undergraduate Learning Outcomes, as are individual course goals for individual courses.

Program Learning Outcome alignments can be found here: Program Learning Outcomes

Course Goal alignments can be found here: Course Goals
