The Assessment Committee is one of the Strategic Committees of the University, charged with assessment oversight, promotion and support for both academic and instutional support operations. Academic assessment is an on-going, open, evaluative process focused on improving student learning. It requires the University to make its learning expectations clear to students and to establish appropriate learning outcomes at the course and program levels. It helps determine how well student performance matches the expected outcomes. The resulting information is used to inform changes in courses and programs for the improvement of student learning.
Tracdat is our centralized assessment database, designated to archive assessment findings and provide reporting tools for instituitonal analysis and action. http://lssu.tracdat.com
