Assessing the WSU Mission
Assessment of mission-related student outcomes occurs within specific departments and offices, as well as on a campus-wide basis.
Department and Office Assessment
Mission-related student outcomes are assessed annually by various areas within the University as noted in the following grid (an "X" indicates that an area, overall, has responsibility for teaching students that outcome):
|Academic departments and programs||X||X||X||X||X|
|Student support offices||X||X||X||X||X|
|Enrollment services offices||X||X||X||X|
A more detailed grid which identifies which mission-related student learning outcomes are assessed by specific departments and offices can be found here.
Campus-wide surveys are regularly administered to WSU students each year. Some surveys are commercially available (Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction, National Survey of Student Engagement), and some of the surveys are developed in-house (graduating student, general education). The focus of these surveys, with regard to the five mission-related student learning outcomes, is as follows (an "X" denotes the survey that measures that outcome):
|SURVEYS||STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES|
|WSU Graduating Student||X||X||X||X||X|
|WSU General Education||X||X||X||X|
|Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction||X|
|National Survey on Student
