Program, Curriculum, and Instructional Innovation

A signature component of the University’s Academic Department Assessment Program is its Educational Effectiveness Plan (EEP). The EEP uses an Inquiry Framework, asking departments to identify essential questions they have about their students’ learning and development and to design an inquiry plan to collect and analyze evidence to provide insight into these questions. The EEP provides departments with an ongoing structure for conducting systematic inquiry into the effectiveness of their efforts to support student success. With the EEP, departments have current information they can use for Unit Planning, Annual Budget Planning, AQAD reports, Accreditation, and other reporting on an ongoing basis.
