Annual Assessment Process

The Division of Student Affairs has established an annual expectation that departments engage in, and document, assessment efforts. The process is designed to recognize departmental needs and capacities for assessment, encourage and enhance a culture of assessment, and to document assessment efforts and activities that close the assessment loop and support improvement.

Annual assessment efforts begin with department or unit needs. Each department in the Division submits an annual assessment plan. These plans articulate the unit’s assessment projects for the year. At the close of the year departments report on their results and findings, and document improvement activities.
