Summary of 2012 Annual Assessment Reports: Undergraduate Programs Achieved Significant Assessment Goals
All 54 WSU undergraduate programs submitted annual assessment reports in October. ATL compiled the results and provided summaries for each college as well as a WSU-wide summary. The 2012 reports indicate that several significant goals have been achieved in WSU’s undergraduate program assessment.
All programs had the following elements in place and up-to-date by 9/1/2012:
- Student learning outcomes
- Assessment plan
- Curriculum map of key learning outcomes
- Direct and indirect measures
- Documentation of how assessment results contribute to decision-making in the program
The reports also indicate the need for continued improvement in multi-campus communication and coordination of assessment.
Assessment reporting provides data for decision-making, it supports effective, systematic assessment, and it contributes to institutional accreditation.
