EEP Guide for Departments

Developing Your Educational Effectiveness Plan (EEP)

The EEP provides departments with an ongoing structure for conducting systematic inquiry into the effectiveness of their efforts to support student success. EEP results provide departments with current information they can use for Unit Planning, Annual Budget Planning, AQAD reports, Accreditation, and other reporting on an ongoing basis.

The next round of academic departments’ EEP Reports are due February 13th, 2023

This guide provides departments with an overview of and instructions for completing their EEP report. You can navigate through the guide either by using the left sidebar menu or the links at the bottom of each page.

Additional guidance and consultation is available from the Office of Academic Planning and Assessment (OAPA) by contacting Alicia Remaly at or 413-545-3320.

We have developed an EEP Reporting Form using Qualtrics. Department Heads and Chairs will be sent a unique link to access the form, which can be shared with all individuals contributing to the EEP report. Departments will have ongoing access to their responses to provide updates, share with others, and download PDF versions of their most current version as needed. For questions regarding using Qualtrics and submitting your form, please contact Alicia Remaly ( or 413-545-3320).
