AUL Marbella Assessment is the systematic collection, review, and use of information about our educational programs undertaken for the purpose of improving student learning and development. An outcomes assessment is completed for each program annually. AUL Marbella has developed an outcomes assessment program intended to provide an ongoing review of the institution’s effectiveness. The program for assessing institutional effectiveness has two components: one, gathering and compiling information on the extent of AUL Marbella’s accomplishments in achieving defined purposes; and, two, using such information for institutional planning and program improvement.
