Use of Assessment Toolkit

Below are resources that may be useful to programs as they plan their use of assessment. For more information about use of assessment at WSU, see Key Assessment Elements: Use of Assessment.

ATL also offers interactive workshops to WSU faculty and departments, adapted to meet goals, needs, and group contexts, focusing on ways to present and interpret results from program assessment activities, so that results can contribute to decisions that support student learning and assessment. For more information, see our Workshops page or contact us.
