At the Truman College, assessment is considered a systematic and ongoing process that collects aggregate data about what students know and can do based on measurable student learning outcomes for:
General Education Outcomes
(Written & Oral Communication, Inquiry and Analysis, Critical Thinking, Civic Engagement & Human Diversity)
Programs (Degrees and Certificates)
Core courses for our academic disciplines
Data and information resulting from the assessment process serve to inform improvements in pedagogy, course content, the curriculum, learning resources, and student services. Because the assessment process must be faculty owned, faculty driven, and administratively supported, utilization of assessment data by faculty is designed to improve student performance, student development, and student achievement.
