Upcoming Assessment Deadlines

  • October 28, 2024 (Monday)
    • Academic program assessment reports for academic year 2023-2024 and plans for academic year 2024-2025 due
    • Administrative unit reports for academic year 2023-2024 or fiscal year 2024 and plans for 2024-2025 and fiscal year 2025 are due
  • Clarifications on Reports and Plans - Let’s think of a report as two parts. Part A consists of what you plan on doing this year for assessment (fill out the column labeled measure). This is also known as an Assessment Plan. Part B then looks at the past year of what you’ve done for assessment (fill out the columns labeled results and plan along with the summary sections). A full Assessment Report is part A that was filled out last year plus part B that you’re filling out this year. Each year you will hand in Part A from the current school year (Assessment Plan) and part B from the previous school year (making it an Assessment Report).
  • Please contact Drs. Gloria Shenoy ( for Academic Assessment or Melissa Ray ( for Administrative and Academic Support Assessment with any questions or concerns.
