At Marian University, the MARIAN Program-Level* Assessment Planning and Reporting Process seeks to be:
During the 2019-2020 academic year, the first phase of the process will focus on planning. Programs will provide details about their outcomes and planned assessment activities through the Program-Level Assessment Plan. Completed plans were submitted in March 2020 and TLC reviewed all plans and provided programs with feedback. To assist programs in this phase of the process, Tony Ribera, Director of Educational Assessment, contacted program leaders to discuss their plans and ways he and TLC can support their program-level assessment planning and implementation.
Following the planning phase, beginning during the 2020-2021 academic year, programs will submit annual reports focused on continuous improvement. Via the Program-Level Assessment Report, programs will provide updates on their assessment activities and how findings from direct and indirect assessment efforts will be/have been used to promote teaching and learning within programs. Completed program-level assessment reports are due Friday, March 17, 2023. Again, TLC will review all reports and provide feedback. The Director of Educational Assessment and TLC will be available to support programs during this stage of the process.
*Although this process focuses on program-level assessment planning and reporting, in some cases, it may be more appropriate for plans and reports to discuss assessment efforts at the school- or department-level. Please contact Tony Ribera with questions or to discuss this further.
