What is Assessment?

Assessment is a method for faculty to collect feedback on how well students are learning. The purpose of assessment is to provide faculty and students with information and insights needed to improve student learning, teaching strategies, and curriculum. Assessment can be fun and most importantly, puts the responsibility for learning squarely on the student. It also opens a dialogue between the faculty and the student on the teaching/learning process.  Overall, assessment is a process of self-reflection with an outlook towards improvement.

Faculty provide continuous feedback to students to help students improve their learning strategies and study habits so that they can become more independent, successful learners. The conversations between and among faculty, students, and other stakeholders provide an excellent way to share best practices.
