What is eLumen?

Article Type: General Information 



  • eLumen allows us to define, capture, and analyze assessment data and conduct trend analysis over time. It facilitates systematic assessment across sections of a course and provides a mechanism to track planned improvements on the results of each assessment. These services help Metro State in regional and specialized accreditation and continuous improvement initiatives within the university. 


The implementation of eLumen is focused on program level assessment linked to courses, programs, general education and institutional outcomes.This deployment process involves importing ISRS data into eLumen and validating linkage to D2L. Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are defined for the 77-degree programs at Metropolitan State along with 30 resident faculties trained in defining assessments.
