Assessment System

The assessment system for the education unit reflects a comprehensive system that ensures programs meet university goals while responding to unit, state and professional standards.

The system supports data-driven program reviews and unit studies that examine:

  • alignment of curriculum, instruction, and assessment with unit, state, and professional standards;
  • efficacy of courses, field experiences, and programs;
  • candidate’s development of content knowledge, skills and dispositions that lead to effective student learning or school leadership; and,
  • effectiveness of programs and unit operations.
