To assist faculty in improving student learning through the effective use of assessment.
The primary concern of our office is with assessment of student learning at the individual course, program, department and university level to promote learning. The focus is on formative, rather than summative assessment.
Assessment is not the goal... Learning is
In conjunction with the university's mission to foster a "learning-centered environment," the Office for the Assessment of Student Learning was established to support faculty in their assessment of student achievement.
In coordination with the Faculty Development Center, the Office for the Assessment of Student Learning provides resources, workshops, individual and program consultations in an effort to fulfill the university's mission to promote sustained improvement of student learning.
