Assessment

Informed by its Jesuit, Catholic heritage and inspired by its motto Ever to Excel, Boston College continually strives to improve student learning across the University's curricular and co-curricular programs and experiences. By engaging in distinctive and sustained assessment practices, which include campus-wide dialogue and reflection on teaching and learning, Boston College supports excellence in formative education, student success, and program effectiveness. The implementation of intentional pedagogical strategies based on student-centered evidence enhances the integrity of curricula, supports the ongoing planning and renewal of academic and co-curricular programs, and promotes institutional values, aspirations, and priorities. Collectively, these assessment efforts serve to advance Boston College’s commitment to academic excellence and students’ integration of their intellectual, social, and spiritual selves, a dynamic that animates a Boston College education.
