The Assessment Committee oversees and maintains the Unit Assessment System (UAS) that informs faculty and unit practice to foster student learning and success. The committee makes recommendations to the Assessment Coordinator and college administration on infrastructure needs for the development and maintenance of the UAS, and evaluates and adjusts the UAS (at the unit, department and program levels) to ensure effective implementation. The committee facilitates communication at all levels (internal and external organizations) regarding the goals and implementation of the UAS and reviews unit-level data on initial and advanced programs and makes recommendations for improvements.
Membership includes the Assessment Coordinator and other faculty elected from: the department of Educational Psychology, Administration and Counseling (2), the department of Liberal Studies (1), the Single Subject Credential Program (1), the department of Teacher Education (2), and department chairs (EdPAC, Liberal Studies, Teacher Education and Single Subject). The Dean, in consultation with the assessment coordinator, shall appoint 2 at-large faculty. The dean or designee, 2 community members (appointed by the Dean), and a representative from Institutional Research serve ex-officio.
