Outcomes Assessment at Niagara University

Niagara University's Outcomes Assessment web site keeps text to reasonable length so that visitors are happy to explore the entire site.

The web site shares the schedule of work (2008 - 2014) to support departments' submission of 5-year reports on continuous data collection. The Departmental Asssessment Plans are submitted to the Senate Outcomes Assessment Committee. That Committee uses a Checklist of 12 questions to review each submission. While a compact list, it clearly indicates that instruments and results are expected for a full report.

Forms are also provided in Word documents. The site is user-friendly and, friendliest of all, publishes real reports and sample forms from selected departments.
