Assessment Information for the Division of Student Affairs

What Is Assessment?

  • A process for gathering and analyzing data in order to make an informed decision about how a program/activity/function is performing (Qtd in Leading Assessment for Student Success edited by Rosie Phillips Bingham, Daniel A. Bureau, and Amber Garrison Duncan)

How Does Assessment Work Connect to the Strategic Plan?

  • The Strategic Plan is a roadmap for where we want to go as a Division. Assessment helps us better understand whether we are reaching our goals and how we can improve.

How Does Student Affairs Assessment Work Connect to Other Assessment Work on Campus?

  • Student Affairs works closely with Academic Affairs to align co-curricular and curricular learning assessment efforts. See Assessment of Student Learning for additional resources on assessing student learning outcomes.
