Academic Assessment

Colleges and schools assess outcomes throughout their academic programs, administrative offices, and affiliated centers and institutes. For academic assessment, the process involves the collaboration of multiple faculty and staff members in developing, implementing, reporting, and using assessment data for program improvement. To coordinate efforts, each college or school has a representative or assessment liaison, which is part of the University Assessment Committee. At the program level, faculty develop learning and program outcomes, establish methods for measuring outcomes, and collect and report data that is submitted for review to the liaison for the college. These reports are then submitted to APA office for a final review.
