Reporting Goals

Reporting annually on program assessment furthers several goals:

  • Helps programs document their assessment activities and processes; may assist in identifying needs and next steps.
  • Serves as an institutional inventory, providing a snapshot of current assessment activities within colleges and institution-wide.
  • Contributes to WSU’s regional accreditation requirements under the Northwest Commission for Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). Helps respond to recommendations.

Program Assessment Report Summaries

  • WSU: Information from annual program assessment reports are compiled to provide summaries of undergraduate program assessment at WSU. This information is shared with WSU leadership, helps inform WSU-wide goals and helps ATL prioritize where support is needed.
  • Colleges: Results are compiled for each college to provide a snapshot of assessment in the college and shared for discussion with college leadership.
