The success of Community Engaged Learning (CEL) is dependent on rigorous, meaningful assessment and structured reflection. The greater the degree of academic integration and the more continuous the students' reflections are on the experience, the stronger the positive effects of CEL are on outcomes such as reflective judgment and the “use of complex and multiple perspectives in identifying the causes of and formulating the solutions to specific social problems” (Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005, p. 193).

CEVC (with support from the JMU Center for Assessment and Research Studies) can assist you in aligning assignments with established learning outcomes and selecting a variety of formative and summative assessments. CEVC is also available to facilitate reflection and/or provide resources and customized reflection prompts for your course.
