The assessment of student learning outcomes is a vital part of teaching and learning at Roger State University. It is important for three reasons:

  • To enhance degree programs and student success.
  • To provide accountability to students, parents, regents, accrediting agencies, and other stakeholders.
  • To assist in the process of university and program accreditation.

The University Assessment Committee (UAC) supports assessment by guiding and evaluating an assessment process that helps to ensure quality instruction. The primary functions of the UAC are to:

  • Provide feedback and support to Departments about assessment of student learning outcomes through a review of reports and processes about the assessment of student learning outcomes.
  • Coordinate the assessment of general education student learning outcomes by establishing procedures and practices by which Department-based assessment findings may be connected and aggregated.
  • Communicate outstanding assessment practices with faculty and the University community to highlight promising assessment models and promote faculty ownership of the assessment process.
  • Advise the Office of Academic Affairs about institution-wide initiatives to assess student learning outcomes.
