Office of Assessment

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
