Park University – Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning


Park University is committed to providing “access to academic excellence.”  Assessment–at the university, degree program, and classroom levels–helps us know more about and improve student learning.  This website serves as a central repository for information about assessment at Park University and resources supporting best practices in assessment.

Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning.  It involves:

  • Making our expectations explicit
  • Setting appropriate criteria and high standards for learning
  • Systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards
  • Using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance.
