What is Assessment?

Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning.

Assessment involves:

making our expectations explicit and public;

setting appropriate criteria and high standards for learning quality;

systematically gathering, analyzing and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards; and

using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance.

Assessment helps us create a shared academic culture dedicated to assuring and improving the quality of higher education.
