Follow the Data: How is Assessment Shared at WSU?

ATL worked with leadership during the summer to deepen our understanding of assessment practices and needs at WSU.

We met with the Liaison Council for undergraduate program assessment to draft, discuss and revise a flowchart, showing who is involved in assessment reporting. The flowchart is designed to serve as a tool to clarify current practices and identify gaps, in order to support communication and the flow of assessment information in departments, colleges, and campuses. We encourage programs to adapt it to fit their context.

We met individually with each Dean and Vice Chancellor to discuss ways that assessment contributes to decision-making and planning at the college and campus level.  This information adds to our understanding of the use assessment at WSU, and will be included in our upcoming accreditation report.
