Association for the Assessment of Learning in Higher Education (AALHE)
The Association for the Assessment of Learning in Higher Education (AALHE) is an organization of practitioners interested in using effective assessment practice to document and improve student learning. As such, it aims to serve the needs of those in higher education for whom assessment is a tool to help them understand learning and develop processes for improving it.
The organization — and this website — have been designed to constitute a wide range of resources for all who are interested in the improvement of learning, from assessment directors who organize and manage programs, to faculty and Student Affairs professionals who use assessment strategies to understand their students’ learning, to graduate students and others who are conducting research on the effectiveness of assessment processes and instruments, to institutional researchers who want to develop effective learning data systems. AALHE intends to offer assessment practitioners a variety of ways to learn and share their thoughts about assessing and improving learning.
