Under pressure from accrediting institutions such as AACSB and ABET, universities are developing better understanding of, and implementing learning outcomes assessment process. However, many universities and their faculty members are often novices in the process and are seeking to facilitate the process. This paper provides some insight into using a software application specifically designed for assessment. The application assists with establishing rubrics and collecting the data, and provides reports on assessment activities and outcomes. Additionally, these supporting features are all stored for future use and comparisons. Assessment of learning is being addressed and required at the university level across all disciplines. Automating the process will make it less laborious.
