    Abstract

    Assurance of learning is a predominant feature in both quality enhancement and assurancein higher education. Assurance of learning is a process that articulates explicit programoutcomes and standards, and systematically gathers evidence to determine the extent towhich performance matches expectations. Benefits accrue to the institution through thesystematic assessment of whole of program goals. Data may be used for continuousimprovement, program development, and to inform external accreditation and evaluationbodies. Recent developments, including the introduction of the Tertiary Education andQuality Standards Agency (TEQSA) will require universities to review the methods they useto assure learning outcomes.
