Overview: The first wave of 2019 student annual learning assessment reports will be peer-reviewed during 3-5 sessions scheduled in June and July 2019 (dates to be determined). All annual assessment reports will be submitted electronically to the Office of Student Learning Assessment by e-mail to:

For programs that are housed in a specific academic department, the submission of annual assessment reports will first be submitted to the chair of department to check for completeness. The department chair will then submit the report to the Office of Student Learning Assessment with a copy to the Associate Dean of the College.

Content: Detailed guidelines for the content of assessment reports are provided on pages 3-6 in the file guidelines. Please note that the purpose of assessment of student learning outcomes is to improve programs, teaching, and learning. Therefore, the most important sections of each report should be the findings of the (student learning-related) assessment data, how the data were reviewed, and any relevant follow-up actions taken during the 2018-2019 academic year.

We are still interested in identifying programs with student engagement activities. These activities include but are not limited to civic and community engagement activities. They can be presented as part of the introduction and program highlights of the report.

Formats: Reports can be filed in a variety of formats:
