About Manchester

Assessment Processes

The assessment process at Manchester focuses on:

  • Outcomes: All academic programs, including majors, minors and certificates, define specific learning outcomes for students in the program and design curriculum and assessment tools to measure students' success in achieving those outcomes.
  • Evidence: Assessment includes the collection of direct and indirect evidence of student learning.  Programs analyze findings from assessment in order to affirm practices and identify opportunities for program enhancements.
  • Action: Programs continually evolve and make improvements based on analysis of assessment findings and recommendations to enhance student learning and success.
