The purpose of assessment at Missouri Western is to showcase what we are doing to promote teaching excellence and accountability to our stakeholders, both on and off campus. It helps academic programs (core, undergraduate, or graduate) achieve their student learning and teaching effectiveness goals, and it is part of the ongoing scholarship of teaching and learning that is at the center of our educational mission.
An Assessment Plan is a document that outlines:
- The learning outcomes for departments or programs
- The assessment methods used to demonstrate the achievement of each outcome
- The timeframe for collecting and reviewing the data
- The individual(s) responsible for the collection/review of data
