Template for Program Assessment Annual Update

As part of the Program Assessment Cycle, programs are to provide an annual update to the Provost’s office regarding their progress, successes and challenges. The following template can be used to provide this update. Suggested length of the annual update is 2-3 pages.

Part 1:

Identify noteworthy accomplishments the program has achieved in the past year (summer, fall, current spring semester).

Part 2:

Review progress toward goals and strategies identified in the Program Assessment report, including unanticipated challenges toward achieving program goals. Also note any changes in program goals and strategies and, where appropriate, their impact on student learning. Please be sure to consult the program’s data in the Research and Teaching Overview report.

Part 3:

Briefly note how you are collecting data to assess and/or improve your student learning objectives. This information is critical to our institutional accreditation process.

Part 4:

Please provide the names, contact information, and current positions (if known) of doctoral graduates during the 2021 calendar year (spring, summer, and fall graduates). Also, indicate any national awards that your faculty won during the previous calendar year.
