The point of assessment practices is to check if the programs being offered are effectively preparing students to reach the expected goals. Evidence of student learning should then be utilized to make changes that ideally lead to improvement of both program and student attainment of goals.
Evidence of Student Learning
- Undergraduate Assessment Reports
- Student Satisfaction Surveys
- Student Engagement Surveys (NSSE/FSSE)
- Job Placement & Salary Data
- Educator Preparation Institution Score Report (2016)
