In summer 2004, on the recommendation of the Assessment and Outcomes Committee, MSU adopted its new Student Outcomes Assessment Policy. This policy is designed to foster the integration of formal program assessment into the evolution of departmental curricula and instructional practices. The policy emphasizes faculty participation and the need to document the use of assessment data in the decision-making process. An Assessment Guide (updated 03-01-10) for department heads provides more detail on the process.
The links below allow you to review departmental assessment plans. Assessment reports will be provided annu
ally and assessment plans will be updated every two years. Please use the cover pages below at to begin your documents.
All plans are reviewed by members of the Assessment and Outcomes Committee, who provide feedback to the departments and request updates in cases where deficiencies are noted.
