The Assessment Steering Committee was asked, “What are the anticipated deadlines for assessment this year?”


This is an excellent question and one we’ve gotten several times. We discussed this at our planning meeting and developed the following timeline for the 2014-2015 assessment cycle:


Early Fall (August-September - departmental retreats and/or faculty meetings):

          Review actions

          Ensure that actions get implemented

          Ensure assessment activities will take place


          Carry out assessment

          Collect data

Late Spring/Summer (May-June-July-August):

          Analyze and interpret results

          Compare with last year's results, if applicable

Summer/Early Fall (August-September - departmental retreats and/or faculty meetings):

          Share results with faculty

          Discuss progress on previous year's actions

          Identify new actions to be taken

No later than September 15, 2015:

          Finalize and have report completed in Compliance Assist for college and institutional review


Then repeat the following year. If you or your faculty have any questions, please feel free to contact Corinne Nicolas, [log in to unmask] in the Tenn TLC, Michael McFall, [log in to unmask] in the OIRA, or Mary Albrecht, [log in to unmask] in the Office of Accreditation.
