Assessment in Student Affairs
Assessment serves as a way to evaluate whether or not the Division of Student Affairs and the departments housed in the division are progressing towards reaching their goals. In the division, we develop outcomes for our various programs and services to clearly articulate the purpose and objectives behind our services. Assessment allows us to measure whether or not we are meeting those outcomes and demonstrating progress towards our goals.
In addition to outcome evaluation, assessment methods are used to gain a better understanding of what aspects of the student experience contribute to student success. By using data from various sources to evaluate the relative contributions of different aspects of the student experience, we serve to gain a better understanding of how much influence one aspect may have.
SP&A leads the division's assessment efforts by providing resources for conducting various types of assessment, managing reporting processes, leading the Assessment Committee, administering Student Affairs related surveys, and overseeing the the Program Review process.
