Tips for Annual Assessment

  • Academic Planning can assist departments in developing their assessment plan.
  • It is not necessary to assess every program learning outcome every year. Depending on the number of PLOs, a 3-, 5-, 7-year cycle may be appropriate. Accredited programs can use the timeline of the accreditation cycle to assess PLOs.
  • All PLOs of all degree programs offered (bachelor’s, master’s, minor and certificate) should be assessed at least once per program review or accreditation cycle.
  • There are faculty-created rubrics available from the AAC&U and linked in the resources area that can be used as is or as a starting point to assess the big themes in program learning outcomes.
  • Accredited programs doing annual assessment can use that report for as their annual assessment report. Please submit to using the link on the Reports and Submission site.
  • Design a capstone experience which has program learning outcomes as course learning outcomes and assess student work in a way that allows you to simultaneously evaluate student learning in the program learning outcomes and grade the course.
