is a software package that assists with the management of the assessment-based
portion of undergraduate academic program review (UAPR). The software
does not allow you to document everything that the UAPR guidelines
request. It does however; assist you in the management of the assessment
process itself. TracDAT allows you to enter information on your
program, including your assessment plan, program outcomes, assessment
methods, evidence/data measuring those outcomes, data utilization/decisions
made, and follow-up into the next cycle of assessment. CUPR and
UGA do not require that programs use TracDAT for their UAPR processes
or reports. More information about the TracDAT software package,

Why this Product? Faculty and
administrators are interested in identifying resources that promote
engagement in the assessment-based program review process. While
no software is perfect, TracDAT is a tool that can help faculty
stay on top of the assessment process. If used to its
full capability, TracDAT will help faculty document the decisions
they make after evaluating outcome findings. It will serve as a
reminder of results that need to be addressed in the following years,
and it will provide a way to document a programs successes.
TracDAT will also help faculty understand how their
outcomes match to accreditor, college, and institutional goals.
Likewise, the institution and college will be able to understand
how well they are meeting their goals.
