Student Learning Outcomes

We embrace a common set of student learning outcomes and we are accountable for sustained measurement of these outcomes

Students getting their academic degree
The Texas A&M System has developed a common set of measures that allow us to hold our member institutions accountable for student success. Each A&M System university reports progress for each learning outcome based upon a variety of measures. These measures provide a fair comparison of progress and performance for each institution as they develop and implement solutions for each desired outcome. A representative list of measures used to determine progress is provided with each outcome below.
