  • Department chairs/heads must provide a summary of the department's assessment activities annually using the report templates below.
  • Assessment reports are due to your college dean in either June or July 2015. Check with your dean for your specific college due date.
  • Chairs/heads are required to report on a minimum of ONE UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM and ONE GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM annually beginning in 2014-2015.
  • As part of new requirements of Academic Affairs, chairs/heads must submit assessment reports for MASTERS LEVEL degree programs in summer 2015 and for DOCTORAL LEVEL degree programs by summer 2016.
  • The University Assessment Coordinators will review both your undergraduate and graduate assessment reports and provide written feedback to each department on how assessment can be improved in the upcoming year. Department chairs/heads will receive their written feedback by September of each year.
  • If you do not know the Tier status for a particular program, please check the links below or contact Mark Lyford. Also, please check the links below for definitions of what constitutes a Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 assessment program.


  • Review the information provided on this page and take a look at the examples. There is an updated resource page specific to graduate program assessment and a FAQ page.
  • Review the written feedback you received from the University Assessment Coordinators last year. If you do not have it, please contact Mark Lyford.
  • Talk to your college's assessment coordinator for guidance about which degree program(s) to write about and whether your department should submit a report for more than one undergraduate or graduate degree program OR whether you should consider grouping together more than one program for assessment purposes. We cannot write a one size fits all piece of advice as the colleges and programs are organized very differently.
  • Ask your college's assessment coordinator, Erika Prager, or Mark Lyford to review your report in advance of submitting it to determine if you are on track.
  • Please do not wait until the last minute to work on your assessment project or this report. This is something that takes time and with a little feedback on the front end, your project and report can be significantly improved prior to submission.
