Office of Academic Quality established an interdisciplinary Assessment Council, which is composed of designated Assessment Coordinators from each academic department and service program. This position is considered a vital function within departments/programs.
Assessment Council convenes one to two times each semester to conduct a peer review of the learning assessment reports submitted by academic departments and service programs. The coordinators work in teams to analyze the assessment reports, provide feedback by completing the OAQ's learning assessment report rubric, and participate in an inquiry of the reports and their assessment work.
