What is eLumen?

eLumen software was purchased to house student learning outcomes and assessment data.  Roles are defined in eLumen to limit access and sharing. Only faculty teaching a specific course will see their own data. All other views of data will be aggregated.

 eLumen Need to know

  • eLumen houses student learning outcomes for each course and can be accessed by faculty teaching the course using their myHancock login.
  • eLumen provides insight on course strengths and weaknesses by cataloging assessments of each SLO.
  • eLumen provides faculty a printed report of their status on assessing student learning outcomes which can be included in the program review annual update and eliminates the need to prepare charts and narratives for all SLOs.
  • eLumen data can be declared in an assessment (aggregate scoring) which means you only enter 3 numbers in eLumen for each learning outcome per course you assess (note: IE recommends data be entered at the student level, but it is not mandatory. This will allow for disaggregation of the data as required by ACCJC).
  • eLumen data will not be used for full-time faculty evaluation.
  • eLumen data will support the college’s accreditation recommendation.
  • eLumen also supports the ACCJC’s accreditation requirements.
