For more information concerning Academic Learning Compacts please visit the ALC Policy webpage.
Full text versions of exemplary ALCs from the 2012 assessment year are available by permission of the authors. Exemplary ALCs are those that scored above 75% on the ALC rating rubric.
ALCs from the 2013 assessment year will be scored using a modified ALC rating rubric, which double weights the Action Taken section (VII). Also, please note this important statement from the Provost, which applies to ALCs for all programs.
"Student learning is at the core of UNF's mission, and because student learning outcomes increasingly drive our design of curricula and deployment of resources, it is expected that faculty will contribute to the assessment of learning. Justifications for the recruitment of new or replacement faculty positions are strengthened when departments are able to demonstrate ongoing assessment of student learning outcomes. Beginning with the approval process for the FY15 budget, departments must develop and maintain satisfactory Academic Learning Compacts before new and replacement faculty lines can be justified." (Interim Provost Earle Traynham, June 13, 2013)
