Assessment

At NC State University, assessment is considered an important tool that facilitates discussion about academic and student programs and provides useful information to guide continuous program improvement.

New Student Orientation understands that asking questions about student learning and development is a shared commitment among faculty, administrators, staff and students. New Student Orientation collaborates each year with the Office of Assessment within the Division of Academic & Student Affairs, to design and implement a successful assessment plan.

Our assessment plan allows us to provide specific student learning goals and outcomes, to evaluate the extent to which students are reaching those goals, and to evaluate the delivery of our services. Most importantly, our assessment plans provide the opportunity to use the information for program development and improvement.

Assessment information collected from our constituents is shared with college and academic units as well as co-curricular representatives. Assessment reports include the following items:

  • Executive summary report
  • Outline of student ratings
  • Outline of student comments
  • Outline of recommendations

Below are several PDF files outlying our method of assessment, as well as some findings of NSO assessments:
