Outcomes Assessment

If your institution licenses Outcomes Assessment, the following reports are also available.

The purpose of Outcomes Assessment is to be able to collect the data necessary to conduct ongoing and systematic assessment and evaluation at an institutional level. Reports are relevant to every Outcomes Assessment stakeholder, from the president and provost, to faculty members, accreditation committees, and deans and chairs. Every constituent is looking for ways to demonstrate the institution’s impact on learning and the effectiveness of teaching. Gathering this information and making it available for general consumption in the appropriate way ensures they can do that.

Outcomes Assessment includes additional reports that provide institutions with the visibility that they need to demonstrate progress across the institution and over time. The ability to report on student achievement and teaching effectiveness enables access to performance data across the institution and enables stakeholders to assess return on investment as participation and input can be collected and analyzed.
