Each year, the Assessment Committee submits two reports to the Board of Regents – one for the Board’s fall October meeting and one for their spring May meeting. The fall report focuses on data from institution-wide survey and assessment instruments administered during the prior academic year. The spring report typically summarizes findings from department- and program-level assessment conducted during the prior academic year. In recent years, the spring report has focused on the launch of the new Decennial Assessment Cycle.
