Student Assessment Researchers (StARs)
We can help
The Academic Assessment team (A-Team) supports evidence-informed decision-making at program, college, and campus levels by engaging campus partners in inquiry about student learning. We accomplish our mission by:
- initiating and facilitating conversations about the role of learning outcomes assessment in enhancing student learning and improving academic programs;
- creating collaborative opportunities for faculty, staff, administrators, and students to develop individual and collective capacity to design learning outcomes assessment inquiry projects and use results to inform decision-making; and
- developing and disseminating resources that build individual and campuswide capacity to engage in learning outcomes assessment.
Grounded in a strong theoretical and empirical base, our approach to learning outcomes assessment focuses on the development and implementation of locally-defined and sustainable assessment practices that yield valid, relevant, and actionable information with which to improve academic programs and create equitable opportunities-to-learn for all students.
