THE MISSION of the Office for Institutional Assessment is to support the University's commitment to academic and operational excellence by facilitating a comprehensive, data-driven system of academic and administrative assessment.  In the pursuit of continuous improvement, the office consults with faculty, staff, administrators, and other stakeholders regarding recognized best practices, strategies, and standards. In addition, the office facilitates assessment activities in compliance with SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation.

May 7, 2020: The Office for Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment is hosting introductory trainings for the Campus Labs Planning Module throughout the rest of year. The purpose of this trainings is to provide a space to learn how to complete their annual assessment plan in the Campus Labs Planning Module. The first 30 minutes is dedicated to going through the components and mechanics of the software. We will cover topics from logging into Campus Labs to how to link your different assessment components together, with time for questions as we go along. The last 30 minutes will be dedicated working live in the system. Once you sign-up, you will be sent a worksheet to complete beforehand that we will then add into Planning. Trainings will be limited to 8 people per session. Additional offerings for each will be added as needed. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a training or meeting for your program/unit, please email Rob Essaf at Introductory Training Sign-Up Link

    February 5, 2020: We are pleased to announce the 2019/2020 reporting cycle is now open in the Campus Labs Planning module. The overview is that we have migrated all overarching information and connections from last year. We also updated a few things, such as adding "Other Outcome" and "Results Driven Action" plan item templates. The full details of what we have been updating is available in this memo. We have also created guidance for what is considered a completed plan for Institutional Assessment. Please note that other requirements (such as accreditation or college/division) may call for something different. Over the next few months, we will continue to update this website with resources, such as the Guidebook and training opportunities.
