Planning & Assessment

Planning & Assessment

To foster a culture of continuous improvement, as well as meet SACSCOC institutional effectiveness standards, the Division of Academic Affairs employs processes of unit-level action planning and program-level learning outcomes assessment tied to institutional goals, objectives and priorities. Each year, department heads and directors establish and report progress on a set of activities intended to advance unit-level objectives and performance indicators. Similarly, academic program coordinators assess identified learning outcomes within each undergraduate and graduate major program. Data derived from both processes are used to assess the extent to which objectives/outcomes are being met, as well as develop strategies to improve the unit or program.

Annual action planning and learning outcomes assessment processes are documented using the Digital Measures system. Department heads, directors, and academic program coordinators have access to planning and assessment screens for their unit or program(s). Deans and administrative supervisors can in turn review action plans and outcomes assessment plans for all units and programs in their area. The link to the right provides additional information on the use of the Digital Measures system to undertake and document action planning and learning outcomes assessment.
