Assessment is defined "the systematic collection, review, and use of information about educational programs undertaken for the purpose of improving student learning and development" (Palomba & Banta, 1999). 

The assessment offices at CSULB use a variety of quantitative and qualitative data collection methods to partner with each other in using assessment results to improve student learning and success.  Together, they enable the institution to respond to various regional accreditation and federal education requirements.
