PFW Assessment Academy

The PFW Assessment Academy supports Academic Departments in improving programmatic assessment.  The cohort model of the Academy emphasizes building collaborative networks between academic departments, the Office of Assessment, and the HLC Assessment Academy Team to strengthen current assessment activities with a specific focus on improving the program’s capacity to understand and improve student learning and success. 

The expected outcomes of the PFW Assessment Academy are:

  1. Create assessable student learning outcomes that define expectations for graduates of the program.
  2. Develop curricular maps that specify the expected level of achievement relative to programmatic student learning outcomes at common points in students’ matriculation to degree and to the Baccalaureate Framework.
  3. Produce an assessment plan defining how student achievement relative to programmatic outcomes will be measured.
  4. Implement the assessment plan through developing metrics that define expected levels of learning, designing and delivering student learning assessments, analyzing results of assessments, and recommending changes to the planned learning experiences of students to improve student success.
  5. Create an Annual Assessment Report that aligns with Appendix D of SD 15-06.
