Institutions need tools that integrate multiple measures of student success - especially direct evidence - to deepen insights about student learning. Assessment technologies can help contextualize learning analytics with student learning outcome evidence, but how can institutions integrate these data? To bridge student success and outcomes data, we need software that enables institutions to aggregate outcomes data by rolling up direct evidence to the institutional level. Our session explores technologies that help institutions to systematize outcomes data, since integrating direct measures with indirect measures yields deeper understanding of student performance, adds depth and nuance to predictive analytics, and offers insights that can foster equity through enhanced capabilities to to pinpoint achievement gaps. Our goal is to help faculty, staff, and other campus leaders create a culture of data-informed decision making by interacting with three tools created to help institutional leaders begin to systematize learning assessment data: a taxonomy, a process, and a rubric.
