    “Mapping individual test items and performance assessments to accreditation standards, course objectives, or similar topics allows instructors in our programs to provide direct, timely feedback to students about their strengths and opportunities for learning. The ability to also aggregate that data for students to see how they perform in an area over an entire course, semester, or program is invaluable to their long-term growth.”
