Program Improvement

Undergraduate Program Assessment

In Fall 2008, each UMass Undergraduate Department was asked to review its current Student Learning Assessment practices and identify next steps for enhancing these efforts. OAPA facilitated this process by creating an initial inventory of each department's assessment practices (see Inventory Example) and offering an assessment workshop that provided guidance for advancing departments' student learning assessment activities. Departments vary in their approaches to assessing student learning, but overall, 89 percent of departments have established student learning outcomes for their majors. Furthermore, 74 percent of departments are implementing their assessment plans, and another 19 percent are in the process of developing their assessment plans. Here we provide you with a synthesis of each department's current student learning assessment activity.
