Faculty in all areas are required to prepare and conduct a program of assessment in the major field of study, the goal of which is to make programs better serve the needs of students. Each faculty member should be familiar with the assessment program in her/his area and should participate in implementing that program. Once a year, departmental faculty are required to prepare and submit to the Assessment Coordinator an assessment report, detailing the results of the assessment processes conducted in the past year and changes made in programs as a result of assessment.

All faculty should also be familiar with the Institutional Assessment Plan and be prepared to perform any duties assigned to them in the process of carrying out or reviewing and revising the plan.
