The purpose of assessment is to systematically improve the quality of student learning, teaching, research, service, and processes at UM.
We accomplish this goal by:
- Identifying learning outcomes and administrative outcomes
- Developing assessment tools to assess the outcomes
- Then analyzing and using the data to make improvements in academic programs and administrative units
Evidence of assessment is necessary for number of audiences, including regional and program accrediting bodies and though assessment can happen at many levels (e.g., for courses or departments), we take assessment to occur at the degree program or unit level.
- Dr. Kate Kellum leads the assessment processes
- provides administrative support and coordination
