The Use of Engagement Data in Accreditation, Planning, and Assessment
Banta, Trudy W.; Pike, Gary R.; Hansen, Michele J.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n141 p21-34 Spr 2009
Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) uses a suite of assessment tools to guide and reinforce a cycle of activities that creates an institutional culture of planning and decision making based on evidence. This cycle includes institutional planning (goal setting), implementation of plans, assessment of outcomes, use of findings to improve processes, and then adjustment of plans to reflect progress or lack thereof. Among the surveys used is the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). In this chapter, the authors expand on this cyclical model and illustrate how student engagement data can be used in addressing external requirements for accreditation and accountability and internal needs for strategic planning and program assessment.
