Evidence & Argument
, WKU's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), articulates a single student learning goal, namely that WKU students will bring evidence and argument to life through written, oral, and visual means. Students will apply and adapt this learning to their professional, social, and personal lives.

This goal is linked to three student learning outcomes:

1. WKU students will demonstrate the ability to gather sound and relevant evidence to address an issue (Evidence-Gathering)

2. WKU students will demonstrate the ability to analyze and synthesize the assembled evidence. (Sense-Making)

3. WKU students will demonstrate the ability to articulate a logical and supported argument based on this analysis. (Argumentation)
