UIU joined the Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) program which has shown Upper Iowa among the top 25% of colleges nationally for enhancing student learning every year since 2006.
The Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) offers an authentic approach to the improvement of teaching and learning in higher education through a continuous improvement model, and recognizes faculty as central actors in educational improvement efforts.
- The CLA assists faculty, department chairs, school administrators and others interested in programmatic change to improve teaching and learning, particularly with respect to strengthening higher order skills.
- The CLA helps institutions improve undergraduate education through assessment, professional development, best practices and collaboration. There are two programmatic areas that support educational improvement: CLA Assessment Services and CLA Education.
