Academic assessment is a process designed to maximize student learning. As such, it aligns program curriculum with teaching to foster and enhance student learning outcomes. Although outcomes, curriculum, and teaching strategies will vary from program to program, the process includes common components and is cyclic and on-going. The process is learning-centered and faculty-driven and requires a non-punitive environment. With the primary purpose of maximizing student learning, faculty members must be able to identify learning weaknesses without concern of consequences.
