Assessment & Evaluations

The Assessments and Evaluations area of Institutional Effectiveness provides consultation, training, technical support, research, and resources to ASU's Instructional and Non-Instructional units to develop assessment plans for continuous improvement efforts. Through a systematic collection of gathering and analyzing data, the Assessments and Evaluations area supports all units' efforts to ensure quality instruction and support services to all students for global impact and compliance with regional, state, and specialized accrediting guidelines. 

Assessment at ASU is an annual process of aligning with the institution's mission, setting goals, defining student learning outcomes and objectives, administering measures, collecting and interpreting data, and improving subsequent programming and learning. All units participate in this annual process supporting data-informed decision-making.
