Development of a national survey to assess student learning outcomes of community-based research
This article describes the creation of a conceptually valid and statistically reliable CBR Student Learning Outcomes Survey, first analyzing the perceived benefits of CBR experienced by 70 undergraduates and faculty at six colleges and universities and later piloted to students from 15 colleges and universities (N=166). Five CBR “outcome con-structs” were measured: academic skills, educational experience, civic engagement, professional skills, and personal growth. This survey can be used as a tool for universities to evaluate CBR courses.
