University assessment focuses on such areas as a) student and faculty engagement in effective educational practices; b) student satisfaction with the quality of academic experiences; c) the quality and efficacy of units and services; d) the institutional environment and climate.
The Graduating Student Exit Survey (GSES), the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE), and the Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE) are examples of University Assessment.
University-wide assessment activities are administered by several offices, depending on the area/domain being assessed. The Program Assessment Specialist coordinates analysis of survey data, facilitates the distribution of the results, and provides necessary training and education in the utilization of assessment information for continuous quality enhancement. The Office of the Provost monitors compliance with the university assessment requirement.
