Assessment in Academic Programs
All academic programs are assessed according to the Policy on Academic Assessment and on a regular 5-year cycle as noted in Program Review and Assessment Report Calendar. All reports are placed on a password protected website (CCSU userID and password) accessible to all instructional faculty and administrators. Reports will be reviewed on a multi-year cycle by the Academic Assessment Committee, which will provide feedback to Departments.
Assessment reporting is on a 5-year cycle, consisting of a full report in year one followed with interim reports for years 2, 3, and 4. The assessment cycle is aligned with the Program Review Cycle such that the full assessment report is due the year prior to the year that the department will submit their program review report. Departments are not required to submit an assessment report for that program in the year that they prepare a program review report (see Program Review and Assessment Report Calendar). For example, if your program is scheduled for program review in Spring 2017 or Fall 2017 then only a Summary assessment report will be due for that program in Fall 2017 (report covering AY 2016-17 activities); this is necessary to comply with BOR requirements. Departments that are accredited by an outside agency, and thus exempt from the Program Review Policy, should follow the same guidelines as outlined for departments preparing for their Program Review – in the year the self-study is written, they complete the Summary report. Please remember that an annual update to an accrediting agency is not analogous to a self-study.
