Academic Assessment

This website provides access to the following information about each academic degree program, as well as information about the General Education program:

  1. Overview of assessment
  2. Expected outcomes
  3. Assessment activities, findings, and changes made on the basis of findings

In addition to outcomes assessment activities, most departments conduct or participate in a variety of additional assessments, including and going well beyond teacher-course evaluations and student surveys. Most departments assess aspects of student recruitment, persistence, satisfaction, and post-graduation success. This website focuses on assessment of student outcomes, reflecting the importance the University of Arizona places on this aspect of our mission. We believe that students, faculty, and staff benefit when outcomes are clearly stated, and used as a guide to curriculum development, teaching, and learning.
