Assessment Plans

Plans for gathering evidence of student learning might include institution-wide or program specific approaches that convey how student learning will be assessed, the data collection tools and approaches that will be used, and the timeline for implementation. Transparent assessment plans are:

• Descriptive of institutional assessment processes, procedures and activities
• Inclusive of assessment measures including what they are, how they are applied, and frequency of gathering evidence
• Clearly expressed and understandable by multiple audiences
• Prominently posted or linked to multiple places across the website
• Updated regularly to reflect current activities
• Downloaded or accessed in a timely fashion by multiple web browsers and download speeds
• Receptive to feedback or comments on the quality and utility of the information provided
