Office for Institutional Assessment

Centers and Institutes

studentClemson University has a systematic approach to annual assessment of all academic and non-academic programs, services, and departments including centers and institutes.  The assessment record for each program / unit is divided into two segments:  a planning document which is due by December 15th and a report which includes analysis of the facts and findings and is due the following October 15th.   (NOTE: Due-dates may vary slightly year-to-year to allow for additional editing time.)

Elements of a completed annual assessment record (aka WEAVE record) includes Mission, Goals, Outcomes/Objectives, Measures and Targets, Findings, Action Plans, Analysis Questions, and an Annual Plan.  In addition, all centers and institutes undergo a comprehensive fifth-year review.
