Assessment

Program assessment is an annual activity undertaken by all CBU academic programs/majors, the Library, and Student Services.  It is a systematic on-going process to collect evidence suitable for ascertaining to what degree a program/major is meetings its stated student learning outcomes (SLOs).  The focus is on student learning; can graduating students demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes identified in the program/major's SLOs?  The collected assessment data and subsequent analysis provide a basis for evaluation, decision making, planning, and budgeting.  In addition, annual assessment is aggregated and included as an important element in the program/major's program review.
