The charge for campus-wide assessment is derived from the Strategic Plan 2017-22 FSU will “ advance a culture of purposeful assessment and ongoing evaluation on campus (Strategic Plan 2017-22, p.6). In addition, FSU will “maximize the use of data system and assessment tools to monitor learning outcomes, evaluate program effectiveness, and advance student’s persistence goals” (Strategic Plan 2017-22, p.6). In response we developed a University-wide Assessment Plan (2018-23) detailing comparable assessment activities for all students at the campus and program levels.
The Plan was developed in parts with the input and review from multiple stake holders like faculty, staff, AAG members, deans, OIE, student affairs units and Provost. It scaffolds institutional and program course level objectives that when combined give a picture of campus-wide assessment of student learning.
