Assessment

Assessment efforts in the Division of Student Affairs focus primarily on student learning. In addition to ensuring that we are meeting the needs of students, our efforts are driven by our curiosity to know in what ways our programs and services help students to learn more about themselves and others, apply that learning, and integrate it into their lives.

This site is designed to help all members of the division – from assessment beginners to those with advanced training and experience – gain the necessary skills to conduct assessment and use the results. This website has resources to get started on assessment, including templates, a user-friendly assessment cycle, workshop materials, and a link to Campus Labs, our assessment vendor. The division also has an assessment working group which consults with departments on assessment activities.
