Assessment Plans

An assessment plan is completed by each program and outlines assessment plans for the next five years. Assessment plans efficiently keep track of a program's assessment goals, progress, and improvement areas. They are a component in the Annual Assessment Reports and are required to be updated each year when the program completes the report.

Prior to looking below at the components of an assessment plan, check out this example/template of an assessment plan to understand where each of the below components lie.
