Integrated Core Learning Outcomes (ICLO) Assessment Instrument
This instrument measures Marquette's six institutional learning outcomes. It asks all first-semester seniors (approximtely
1500) annually to evaluate quantitative and qualitative evidence regarding a reading on a global issue, answer a series of
multiple choice questions, and produce one of three randomly assigned communications tasks--two involving prose literacy,
and one involving computational and graphing literacy.
The ICLO instrument is a direct measure and was piloted in spring 2008 with 64 students. Full implementation will
occur in fall 2008.
Core Curriculum Review Committee (CCRC)
Members of the CCRC and the "Who Counts?" Advisory Comittee review data from the ICLO Instrument. The CCRC
and the Core Director (the "Who Counts?" program director) are responsible for making recommendations for program changes
to improve student learning.
The CCRC also receives the results of indirect measures.
