Excellence in Assessment Designation
The Excellence in Assessment (EIA) program recognizes institutions for their efforts in intentional integration of campus-level learning outcomes assessment. The EIA designations focus on campus processes and uses of assessment outcomes, rather than on student performance or accomplishment. Building on the foundation of reporting both student learning outcomes assessment results and processes established in the Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA) College Portrait, the EIA designation evaluation process is directly and intentionally built from NILOA's Transparency Framework.
The inaugural year of the EIA Designation will be 2016. An overview of the application process can be found here. Application deadlines are shown below:
