History of Assessment at Syracuse University

During the 2014–2015 academic year, Syracuse University began an institution‐wide initiative to standardize assessment processes and prepare for the upcoming Middle States self-study. The Associate Provost for Academic Affairs researched best practices, SU’s assessment needs, and regional and specialized accreditation requirements to develop processes and templates that would guide schools and colleges, co‐curricular programs/units, and functional areas in creating and implementing assessment and action plans (AAP). Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment’s (IEA) Assessment Working Team (AWT) also researched SU’s history of student learning outcomes assessment.
