Academic Effectiveness

 

WOU Assessment Model

Faculty in WOU’s academic programs:

  • Develop assessment plans
  • Assess student achievement of program learning goals and report on the results of assessment annually
  • Use the results of assessment to identify needed changes in courses, curricula or pedagogy
  • Review, revise and/or reaffirm program goals and assessment plans annually

Rubrics for self-assessment of plans and reports:  What are we aiming for?
