Types of Evidence
Direct Evidence - is tangible, visible, self-explanatory, and compelling evidence of exactly what students have and have not learned.

Indirect Evidence - consists of proxy signs that students are probably learning. Indirect evidence is less clear and less convincing than direct evidence.

Transforming Pre-Orientation Adventure:
Our Transition is In-Tents!

"Assessment is most likely to lead to improvement when it is part of a larger set of conditions that promote change.” -Principles of Good Practice for Assessing Student Learning (American Association for Higher Education, 1991)
Three questions we should answer through assessment:
1. What have our students learned?
2. Are we satisfied with what they’ve learned?
3. If not, what are we doing about it?

Pre-Orientation Learning Outcomes
As a result of participating in Pre-O Adventure, students will be able to:

Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of involvement in the USD community.

Use a variety of strategies to manage the academic responsibilities of University student life.

Gain self-awareness, a sense of belonging, increased self-confidence and excitement about their decision to attend USD.

Demonstrate environmental stewardship through a conscious awareness of the environmental impact themselves and others have.

Develop positive management strategies for transitional issues commonly encountered during the Freshman year relating to community, relationships and wellness.

Family Letters

"USD should be proud to have people like you. You’re sweet, silly, and I can tell already, a really genuine friend."

"Thank you for your kindness, humor and patience. Especially when you taught me the cup song."

"Thanks for opening up so much, truly caring about everyone’s well being and sharing your insightful life stories."

- What evidence are you collecting in your program(s)?

- Is the evidence direct or indirect?
