Assessment Plan (Academic Programs)

Faculty develop and maintain assessment plans for their degree programs. Assessment plans are expected yearly, before classes begin; adequate planning can facilitate a smooth assessment process. 

Assessment plans include:

  • Program student learning outcome(s) (PSLOs)
  • Brief descriptions of assessment methods/measures
  • A summary of the faculty/staff and courses/programs involved

Assessment plans:

  • Ensure PSLOs are assessed on the schedule stated on the plan
  • Help Assessment staff provide reminders and other support to those who are responsible for undertaking assessments
  • Facilitate faculty/staff conversations about the goals of the program
