Sparking the Loop: Inspiration to Assessment Ownership

Assessment: Moving from Compliance to Faculty Ownership

A Faculty Learning Community creates advocates for assessment. The FLC faculty assist the programs in their college with the collection, analysis, and submission of assessment data. Individual faculty efforts are recognized through course-level assessment. Best practice programmatic efforts are recognized in a campus-wide Assessment Faire held in May.
