The Assessment Committee encourages, supports and guides the growth of effective student learning outcomes assessment practices at UMKC. The committee is responsible for guiding the development and integration of learning outcomes assessment into a University-wide assessment and evaluation system that is effectively linked with planning and budgeting processes.

  1. Work with the Program Evaluation Committee to integrate learning outcomes assessment with academic program review in the following areas:
    • Develop University guidelines for assessment and assist departments with the development of their student learning outcome statements and assessment strategies that are reported in their program review self-study; and
    • Review departmental assessment plans to ensure that they meet the University's guidelines.
  2. Oversee the development of an assessment information management system for UMKC that:
    • Summarizes the results of assessment measures collected centrally (e.g.,National Survey of Student Engagement, ETS Proficiency Profile, and the Collegiate Learning Assessment);
    • Tracks learning program-level outcomes assessment activities and the use of results for program improvement purposes; and
    • Includes mechanisms for evaluating the effectiveness of assessment and sharing effective assessment practices within and between department and unit level organizations.
