Assessment Calendar and Deadlines

Assessment Timeline

Assessment Period: Beginning fall 2015, the assessment period for graduate, undergraduate, administrative, and student/academic support service program and units extends over five years. During the first four years, faculty and staff measure all goals and related outcomes at least twice and submit annual assessment plans and reports. During the fifth year, they review and reflect on results, decide next steps, and plan future efforts. In this fifth year, programs submit a Four-Year Comprehensive Assessment Report (CAR) and a Four-Year Comprehensive Assessment Plan (CAP) for the subsequent assessment period.

Assessment Cycle: During each assessment cycle, which lasts one year, programs measure at least one goal and its related outcomes. Programs submit results for the previous academic year and plans for the subsequent academic year annually.
