“However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”  Winston Churchill

The framework for assessment in the College rests on several principles.  First, assessment is done for improvement and secondly, all assessments are as transparent as appropriate.  The College recognizes the tension between assessment for improvement and assessment for accountability and seeks to balance the needs of both. Assessments and evaluations should lead to action.

Institutional assessment is driven by the College’s mission, values, and strategic goals. Connection to the University’s and the Board of Regent’s strategic plans is important.
