Components of Revised Departmental Assessment Plans

Departmental assessment plans provide a framework for assessment of academic programs. For each of its major programs, departments will develop brief statements addressing the following three questions: 

  1. What are the program's desired student outcomes? 
  2. What means does the department use to assess attainment of these outcomes?
  3. What departmental structures and processes are in place to ensure that results of assessment are used for program improvement?
