• Institutional Assessment and Planning

    In the Institutional Assessment and Planning Office at Worcester State University, we believe the quality teaching and learning that produce and sustain academic excellence require continuous assessment. Assessment is a continuous process of planning, acting, evaluating, and applying.

    We generate, maintain, communicate, and disseminate institutional information to support assessment and general awareness of student learning. We also assist WSU faculty and staff with any assessment initiatives, including new survey construction, updating surveys, rubric development, and assessment strategies. And we provide professional development opportunities.

    Our assessment work focuses on evaluating educational programs and services as well as integrating assessment strategies into the curriculum. We collaborate with faculty, staff, and university administration to use assessment to improve courses, curricula, and services that impact student learning and development.
