This course was created in collaboration with USF Student Life and CampusClarity (a service of LawRoom).

LawRoom has designed online sexual harassment training for over 20 years and was eager to work with USF.
Data is used to measure learning outcomes, student satisfaction, and prevalence of social norms. Because similar questions are asked from course to course, we are able to see any major shifts in student attitudes and behaviors. To measure knowledge retention, the course is able to track the number of questions answered correctly on the first try to see which areas of the program need to be addressed again or perhaps in a different way.
