Submitting Your Report
Every year, each degree granting program should submit an assessment report as part of its teaching and learning work.
Our office is always trying to make submitting the annual program assessment report as easy as possible and we want to ensure that the process is educative and beneficial.
To that end, it is helpful to remember that assessment should focus on particular questions you have about teaching and learning in the classroom an program and include both quantitative and qualitative data to support your assessment narrative.
