Reporting Assessment Data and "Closing the Loop"


There are multiple reasons for assessing student learning, including providing data on university programs for purposes of accreditation and accountability to external university stakeholders such as parents, legislators, and the Board of Regents.  A major purpose, however, is for departments and program areas to have information that will enable them to make decisions related to the ongoing nurture and development of quality educational programs for students.
