Center for Assessment & Improvement of Learning

Assess Engage Improve


We believe in measuring what matters.

The CAT instrument is a unique tool designed to assess a broad range of critical thinking and real world problem solving skills that faculty across the country feel are essential for success.

We believe students are more than just a number.

The CAT instrument engages faculty with real student responses thereby increasing awareness of their students' strengths and weaknesses and understanding of areas that need improvement.

We believe closing the loop requires the right tools.

The CAT instrument provides a model to help faculty develop activities and assignments that use discipline content to improve critical thinking and real-world problem solving skills.
