Criterion: Centralized Assessment Repository

Eastern Illinois University’s assessment website presents extensive information on EIU’s assessment efforts, guided by EIU’s Committee for the Assessment of Student Learning (CASL). The website provides assessment reports related to CASL’s four learning goals for EIU’s general education program: to demonstrate ability to write effectively, speak effectively, think critically, and function as responsible global citizens. The website also features a detailed Plan for the Assessment of Student Learning, which outlines the history, objectives, and methods of assessment at EIU.

Website visitors can view departmental assessment plans, executive summaries of assessment reports by college; results from EIU alumni surveys; CASL’s newsletter; and links to external assessment resources. Due to its comprehensive and accessible presentation of EIU’s assessment process and findings, EIU’s assessment website is this month’s featured website in the category of Centralized Assessment Repository.
