Assessment

Working in collaboration with the Provost's Office, we offer services to help support classroom or program assessment efforts. We can assist by helping to score surveys completed on optical recognition paper. We can assist by helping you get access to Baseline, a great tool for online surveys. We also can support your work by directing you to university-wide assessment efforts that you can use to better understand the needs of your students.

University-wide Assessment Efforts

  • CIRP is a survey given to incoming first year students to find out their interests and needs before they begin classes. 
  • FSSE is a survey given to faculty to assess approaches they use to improve student engagement.
  • General Education Learning Outcomes Measurement: This learning outcomes measure is performed at the end of the semester, to help assess whether a course met the goals it was intended to cover by the General Education Oversight Committee (GEOC). Results are collected on a course level, and no identifying information about students or instructors are collected. We provide feedback to the GEOC and chairs each year about the performance of the course as a whole. 
  • NSSE is a survey given to first year and senior level students to assess their level of engagement with the university.
