Learning Assurances: Communication Abilities - Instruments and Processes

Based on an extensive literature review, this paper provides a resource for faculty as they define learning goals and their assessment in the area of "communications abilities," as required in the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business - Eligibility Procedures and Accreditation Standards for Business Accreditation. The paper first provides a discussion of communication skills that might be included in setting learning goals. Recommended learning assurances for "communications abilities" are then provided, as well as methods to assure learning, including student portfolios as a part of the student records management system.
