Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA)

The CLA presents realistic problems that require students to analyze complex materials and determine the relevance to the task and credibility.  Students’ written responses to the tasks are evaluated to assess their abilities to think critically, reason analytically, solve problems and communicate clearly and cogently.  Scores are aggregated to the institutional level to provide a signal to the institution about how their students as a whole are performing.

Allegheny participated in the CLA project every year from 2004-2005 through 2010-2011.
