ASSESSMENT PLANS

In concert with Tulane University's institutional effectiveness processes, each administrative unit and academic program participates in the unit assessment process. Tulane uses a common process, template, and timeline for reporting assessment activities. The unit assessment process is an annual cycle through which all academic, administrative, educational support, research, and service units review their mission and develop, implement, and report their expected learning outcomes, assessment measures, results, and planned improvements based on the results.

Tulane's unit assessment process includes a review of submitted plans. Each plan is reviewed by the University Assessment Committee using a common rubric. Feedback from the reviewers is compiled by the director of institutional assessment and a summary review is returned to each unit. This review process provides a mechanism through which individual units can improve their assessment efforts and ensures that the assessment activities are consistent with best practices.
