Assessing what students know and can do when they complete their degrees at Carolina gives program faculty valuable information that they can use to improve the curriculum, courses, and other learning activities. Faculty develop assessment plans to measure student learning at the program level. The plans contain the program’s student learning outcomes, the measures to be used to assess whether students have achieved these outcomes, and criteria for determining success. Each year, faculty collect and analyze data on student learning and prepare a report that describes their findings and how they have used the results to improve their programs.

This site provides guidelines and resources for faculty who are engaged in academic assessment planning and reporting. If you have questions or can’t find what you are looking for, please contact Dr. Bryant Hutson, Director of Assessment at
