Summary

This policy affirms the University’s longstanding commitment to assessment for enhancing academic and other excellence by developing and implementing plans for the regular assessment and review of institutional effectiveness, academic programs and general education.  Acknowledging the gains made and the ongoing evolution of external standards in the area of assessment and data reporting, the Policy recognizes that each campus must develop assessment plans that are consistent with its mission and goals within the context of the State University’s mission and goals, while maintaining academic rigor and meeting or exceeding external standards for assessment, including accurate and timely data reporting, as required by federal and state law, and that System Administration must work with leadership and governance to develop a plan for the responsible release of accurate, complete and timely information that satisfies reporting requirements and addresses the growing demand for user-friendly public access to data and assessment results.
