    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.
