The Faculty Senate Committee for the Assessment of Student Learning provides guidance for programs in terms of assessment plans, assessment reporting and decision making for the selection of assessment instruments. At UW Oshkosh, assessment takes place at the course, program and university levels to determine if students are meeting the university learning outcomes. Results are shared in the Oshkosh Student Achievement Report designed to support the many campus initiatives for retention and assurance of a quality education. Our campus work follows the inquiry model outlined below.
A systematic means of ascertaining the fit between our expectations (what we intend) and students' actual achievement of those expectations. The assessment process is guided by and anchored in intellectual curiosity about the collective efficacy of our educational practices. Peggy Maki, 2009
