Impact of Assessment

Impact of Assessment

  • A bibliography of articles about program assessment that include results, from the University of Hawaii at Manoa (pdf file).
    • From Monica Stitt-Bergh’s original July 2013 ASSESS post program assessment articles: sharing and a request: “[Published articles or conference papers with] examples of degree program assessment involving direct assessment of student learning…, preferably peer-reviewed, that include some direct assessment of an academic degree program, include at least one assessment result, and are not only a ‘how-to’ or not just ‘what-we-plan-to-do.’ Completed assessments are what I⬔d like to find.”
    • Some of the articles include descriptions of how assessment results informed program planning.
