Student Learning and Licensure (SL&L) Guides

Starting in Fall 2022, NEIU will begin the transition from using Tk20 for course based assessment to Student Learning and Licensure (SL&L). This transition should conclude by Summer 2023 which means as of Fall 2023 Tk20 will not be used for course based assessment anymore.

Embedded course-based assessment is one of the easiest ways to collect and analyze data for program assessment. As a program, you decide which course(s) and provide a rubric to the NEIU Administrative Assessment Coordinator. Once the everything is setup you can have it embedded in your D2L course shell or just work with it within SL&L.
