Note: There are many ways to approach assessment -- depending on the information being sought, the nature of the program, and faculty/department structure and dynamics. The most important thing is that there is ongoing assessment, and that reports of assessment activity are completed on a regular basis. Choose the template that makes the most sense for your assessment work. Please feel free to contact Christie Trolinger with any questions.
