Deans are responsible for overseeing and collecting assessment of student learning in their colleges with help from the Office of Assessment. Deans create timelines for departments to develop assessment plans which are reviewed and updated on a cycle designated by the dean.
- Assessment plans include student learning outcomes along with direct and indirect methods to measure the outcomes.
- Departments submit assessment results and analysis to deans on an annual basis.
- Deans summarize assessment results and report to the provost annually.
- An Assessment Research Coordinator in each college will review assessment plans and results and consult within the college. Then, forward the plan to assessment council/the director of Assessment for review, feedback, and collection. Assessment Council and the Office of Assessment provide professional development and consultation based on the needs of the college.
