Abstract:
The development and implementation of an assessment plan requires input and active participation by faculty and staff at all levels. This paper examines how an assessment infrastructure can be established to provide leadership to an entire university, how continuous improvement can be achieved through the identification of student outcomes and measurement techniques and the role the capstone design experience can play in assessment.
