Idaho State University Assessment

Assessment for Student Success and Learning

Idaho State University Assessment Philosophy

Assessment works only when administrators and faculty agree and understand that the results are to enhance student learning.

Assessment Is:

  • Faculty driven and owned by faculty
  • Inclusive and equitable recognizing the role of contingent faculty
  • Used to make changes, not find fault
  • Developed collegially
  • Recognized positively in promotion, tenure and evaluation
  • Communicated transparently to stakeholders

Assessment Isn’t:

  • Used to fault individual faculty in ways that affect their performance reviews
  • Used to find fault with students and their skills or performance
  • A one-and-done activity but a continuous one
