Assessment is a process that entails the systematic gathering of information and the analysis of information for the purpose of improving student learning and development. The Assessment process is not static, but dynamic and ongoing, and involves multi-methodological approaches. Ultimately, data and information are used to enhance the decision-making process in fulfillment of the University mission.
