Lessons Learned While Conducting Educational Program Assessment
Rivas, Olivia; Jones, Irma S.; Pena, Eli E.
Journal of Case Studies in Accreditation and Assessment, v1 Sep 2010
Assessment, accountability, and strategic planning are all processes that are included in accreditation for colleges and universities. For most colleges and universities, starting the reaffirmation process means identifying current assessment practices and reports from academic units and programs. This paper discusses the lessons learned during a successful completion of the reaffirmation process with a regional accreditation entity. The authors will present a model that includes an understanding of strategic planning, inclusion of faculty at all levels and affirms continuous learning and involvement in a dynamic process. Also included in the paper are additional tips and observations found useful by the authors and that could be useful to the reader. A bibliography is included.
