All departments should have submitted a Student Achievement Assessment Committee (SAAC) Program Assessment Plan and Reporting Cycle document. These plans contain the program learning outcomes and their alignment with the University Learning Outcomes, information about the approval and communication of the learning outcomes, and a multi-year learning outcome assessment plan, with corresponding rational and schedule.

As noted in the SAAC Program Assessment Plans, each department will either submit a SAAC Short-Form or a SAAC Long-Form annually depending upon their reporting cycle. The forms should be used by program faculty for strategic planning, the submission of future SAAC reports, and accreditation or program review. The main goal of assessment or “assurance of learning” is to improve the effectiveness of our academic and co-curricular programming.
