Are Assurance of Learning (AOL) systems required to be only supported by direct measures of student learning?
AACSB Assurance of Learning Standards explain clearly that direct assessment of degree program learning goals is expected; however, there is no prohibition against complementing the direct assessments with indirect measures such as alumni surveys, employer surveys, and graduate satisfaction surveys. These indirect assessments may inform learning goal selection. However, indirect measures alone are not sufficient to meet the spirit and intent of the AoL standards.
