LASSO

learning about STEM student outcomes (lasso)

Learning About STEM Student Outcomes (LASSO) is an online assessment tool that supports STEM instructors and researchers in two meaningful ways.

Instructors

LASSO supports instructors by measuring their students’ success throughout their course. LASSO does this utilizing research-based assessments (RBAs). LASSO administers, scores, and analyzes RBAs at the beginning and end of an instructor’s course. Results are then anonymized and aggregated to provide instructors with normative feedback about their student outcomes. LASSO is free for instructors and can be accessed at the Learning Assistant Alliance’s website.

LASSO provides the data STEM instructors need to:

Inform teaching practices

Identify the concepts students are most and least knowledgeable about

Identify students who may need additional support

Create small groups based on group need

After assessments, LASSO provides these tools automatically and instantly, freeing up class time while increasing outcomes.
