Assessment Process and Rubrics
Office of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness
Purpose of Assessment Plans
Assessment plans for academic programs, administrative departments and student support programs/services identify priority outcomes (Student Learning Outcomes, Student Outcomes, and or Administrative Outcomes); methods to measure progress attainment with pre-determined success criteria; assessment results and support documents; and planning statements for future improvement. All outcomes align with the college, department, and university mission statements and strategic plans, respectively. Please consult the UT Tyler Assessment Handbook or contact email@example.com with questions.
Annual Review Process
All educational programs, academic and student support services, and administrative units participate in annual assessment, analysis, and planning for quality improvement at the program or unit level. Assessment plans are maintained in Nuventive Improve software. The AIE Office staff schedule individual meetings with the administrative department directors, the academic program coordinators and/or department chairs to complete initial reviews of the annual assessment plan updates using internal rubrics. Updates for assessment plans including support documents and action planning are confirmed.
An annual Assessment and Planning Summary Review meeting is orchestrated with the Deans and assessment coordinators for each college, then with the appropriate vice president or provost as the final step in the review process for each assessment cycle. The VP review meetings include discussion of the planning strategies in each assessment plan.
