Assessment Process and Rubrics

Office of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness


The annual self-assessment of academic programs, administrative departments and student support programs/services provides documentation on continuous improvement planning that supports the university mission and strategic plan. Collection and analysis of assessment results focuses on quality for student learning and success in and out of the classroom. Professional staff in the Office of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness (AIE) provide assistance, professional development opportunities, and assessment resources for the campus.


The AIE staff completes initial reviews with the chairs or directors using internal review rubrics. Institutional Effectiveness Committee members provide resource assistance and guidance to their assigned programs or departments in their college or division. An annual summary review meeting with the appropriate vice president is the final step in the review process for each assessment cycle.
