Business schools have established measurement tools to support their AoL systems and assess student achievement of learning objectives. However, business schools have not required their tools be empirically validated thus ensuring that they measure what they are intended to measure. We propose confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) be utilized by business schools to evaluate AoL measurement systems. We illustrate a CFA model used to evaluate the measurement tools at our College. Our approach is in initial steps currently evaluating individual measurement tools, but working towards developing a system that can evaluate the entire AoL measurement systems.
