Annual Student Learning Assessment Reports due Nov. 1

Please see below for information about the Annual Student Learning Assessment Reports from Provost Sarah C. Mangelsdorf and Associate Vice Provost and Director of Assessment, Mo Bischof.

Undergraduate and graduate academic programs* are required to submit their first Annual Assessment Reports through a new online portal by Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017. This annual reporting effort aligns with and supports the goals of the university’s Institutional Plan for Assessing Student Learning.

Assessments reports should be brief and must: 1) identify which program learning outcomes were assessed, 2) outline what data was collected and how, and 3) summarize the key findings and recommendations. Learn how to prepare and submit reports here: Several workshops are also being offered throughout September and October to support academic programs as they develop their reports. See a full listing of the workshops here:

Please share this information with those coordinating assessment activities in your department. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact Regina Lowery, assessment coordinator (890-2973,

We appreciate your continued efforts to provide high-quality academic programs for our students.

*Note: Certificate programs, including undergraduate, graduate and capstone certificate programs, are expected to submit assessment plans by Nov. 1, 2017; certificate program annual reports are not due until Nov. 2018.
