Assessment Plans & Reporting
Every unit is expected to develop and maintain an assessment plan. At a minimum, an approved assessment plan includes:
- Clearly-stated student learning outcomes or performance outcomes and their relation to the UWG strategic plan.
- A description of the intended measurements to be used in the assessment of each outcome providing specific information as to the who, what, when, and how each outcome will be assessed.
- *Academic programs have additional requirements, that can be found here.
Assessment at UWG is on an annual cycle using a staggered reporting schedule that corresponds to the operations of different units. Specifically, the timeline is created to reflect the time data collected in the assessment is available, current, and actionable. The due date reflects the date units are to have completed and submitted their Excel spreadsheets to IEA via email. All due dates fall on the 15th of the respective month, or next business day if the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday.
