Some of these objectives are inherently measurable; i.e., we are able to understand and demonstrate our progress or achievement by identifying whether we have completed an intended project or product, such as the creation of a new program, met an enrollment target, or successful launch of training activities.  To understand the impact of these outcomes, and to evaluate progress of other more nuanced objectives, we will rely on an integrated approach to assessment: 

  • Data: Student, employee and other community and constituent demographics, descriptive statistics, and analytics, including performance targets and metrics.
  • Experience: Review, development, and implementation or modification of existing and new opportunities for engagement.
  • Engagement: Evaluation of experiences and perceptions, whether self-reported or gathered via appropriate assessment strategies, such as point of service or other surveys.
  • Learning and Growth: Evaluation and analysis of the gains or gaps resulting from participation in curricular and curricular education and programs and other learning opportunities, including assessment of learning or other outcomes. Understanding to what extent students, employees, campus leaders, and others have gained knowledge, skills, abilities, or values via their experiences and engagement.
