In its role as working group on Standard 14 (Student Learning Outcomes Assessment) for NYIT’s Periodic Review Report, the committee was asked by the PRR Steering Committee to review and offer comments on the relevant section of the PRR draft document.

The overall organization of the document was discussed and, one section at a time, committee members contributed suggestions:

  • Sections 1 & 2. Student Learning Assessment by NYIT Faculty and Use of Assessment Results to Improve Student Learning Outcomes – suggest we make the link stronger between improved institutional outcomes (e.g., graduation rates, retention) and actions faculty have taken in response to assessment results
  • Section 3. External Assessments – committee members supplied some specific (missing) information related to program accreditations
  • Section 4. Developing an Assessment Culture – Add material about assessment on global campuses; add material on faculty attending assessment workshops off campus; add mention of “house calls” made by assessment coordinator to help faculty design, implement and report on assessments of student learning.
