  • Create course learning objectives that are well aligned with the stated program goals and that appear on all syllabi.
  • Align assessments with the course learning outcomes and assessing students at multiple levels using multiple measures to track growth in learning.
  • Ensure that faculty own the assessment process, and that a culture of assessment is created and nurtured throughout the division.
  • Collect data and synthesize it in a systematic and purposeful way.
  • Apply data analysis to effect course and program improvements, and for allocation of resources.
