Continuous Undergraduate Academic Assessment Process|
It is expected that all undergraduate programs and transcripted certificates offered for credit by NCSU regardless of method or location will fully participate in the assessment process. However, University requirements are flexible enough to allow programs and/or colleges wide latitude in implementing the procedures, including integration of undergraduate and graduate program review where desired.
Assessment activities will continue to be centered in the programs and are facilitated by the colleges. The associate deans for academic affairs are the central figures in managing both the ongoing assessments of student learning outcomes and the eight-year self-studies. Each year the associate deans will collect reports from each undergraduate academic program and transcripted certificate and write a summary for the college. The associate deans will present the summaries at a meeting of the Associate Deans Council in August.
The faculty and associate deans will be aided in their efforts by the Division of Academic and Student Affairs (DASA), University Planning and Analysis (UPA), the Undergraduate Academic Assessment and Comprehensive Program Review Steering Council and assigned university consultants.
Basic expectations for the assessment process:
It is recommended that each program and transcripted certificate complete a curriculum map to help identify the courses in which outcomes are addressed and where the best direct evidence can be collected. The first link below will take you to a page where you can download a curriculum map template as well as a reporting template that can guide programs and transcripted certificates as they write up the yearly report.
