The Office of Assessment is a resource for faculty and departments that want to demonstrate what students are learning in their programs, both to help maintain program excellence and to prioritize areas for program development.

We consult with departments on strategies for collecting evidence of student learning and success, help departments identify and access relevant institution-level data, and assist with analysis of assessment data. The Office of Assessment also coordinates outcomes assessment in departments and collects campus-wide data on how students see their experiences at UI.

The Office of Assessment also serves as the hub for collecting and compiling information in preparation for the university's upcoming institutional accreditation site visit and review by the Higher Learning Commission.
