Grades & Learning Assessments

Antioch University’s use of learning assessments (also called narrative evaluations) is an alternative to traditional rigid grading systems.

Learning assessments for courses and learning activities are written by instructors at the end of each academic quarter. The use of learning assessments enables our faculty to provide students with more meaningful, individualized, and comprehensive feedback on their progress. Students remain focused on their accomplishments, strengths and weaknesses, rather than on the external validation of a letter grade. Through learning assessments, students are encouraged to develop their true potential.

AULA’s official transcripts containing learning evaluations are recognized and respected within the academic community. If for scholarship, reimbursement, or further education purposes you require a letter grade, you can request one on a class-by-class basis directly from your instructor.
