Alverno College's educational system is devoted to an "ability-based curriculum." Though specific assessment techniques are not described, several
publications on student assessment are available. This college is unique because the entire college has the same set of
eight student abilities it teach their students in all courses: communication, analysis, problem solving, valuing, social interaction, global perspective, effective citizenship, and aesthetic response. The school also strongly emphasizes student self-assessment.
