Student Learning Assessment at IUPUI

The office of Institutional Research and Decision Support (IRDS) provides consultation to help you develop quality assessment plans and instruments to assess student learning directly and indirectly. Our aim is to help you with student learning improvement plans as well as accreditation demands.    

The IUPUI Principles of Undergraduate Learning (PULs) are IUPUI's competency-based framework for the learning outcomes that every undergraduate should attain. The PULs have specified the competencies for undergraduate learning for over 15 years. Since 2010, all undergraduate programs have been mapping and evaluating the PULs emphasized in each undergraduate course. At the campus level, attainment of the PULs for seniors is measured as a continuing assessment strategy.

IUPUI Principles of Undergraduate Learning

  • Core Communication and Quantitative Skills
  • Critical Thinking
  • Integration and Application of Knowledge
  • Intellectual Depth, Breadth, and Adaptiveness
  • Understanding Society and Culture
