Modify and Improve Assessment

If the assessment data suggest areas for improvement, faculty should discuss ways in which student learning can be improved.

Focus could be on core classes, research seminars, and other learning opportunities in the program.

After the review is finished and modifications (if any) are made to the graduate program, faculty should determine where to go next in the assessment process. For example, a learning goal/outcome may need to be changed after data have been collected and analyzed or deemed not informative. If so, then the program should return to step 1 in the assessment process. Or, perhaps the measure was off in some way but the goal was fine. In that case, step 2 would be the next starting point.
