Assessment Processes

UNI is committed to the assessment of student learning for the ongoing improvement of curriculum, programs, and services offered by the university and for accreditation processes. All programs submit annual assessment reports with an assessment plan that correlates with the academic program review cycle. This ensures that all student learning outcomes are regularly assessed.  Academic Program Review, occurring on a 7-year cycle and mandated by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, includes both internal and external review processes and provides faculty the opportunity to synthesize a comprehensive set of data to improve student learning. Assessment activities and the collection of data related to student learning outcomes are managed through the resources and leadership of the Office of Undergraduate Studies, the academic colleges, and the Office of Institutional Research & Effectiveness.
