As shown below, Anderson follows a continuous and structured process to assess student learning and provide feedback to faculty for curriculum review and improvement. Through this process we identify and revise programmatic learning goals, define and implement methodology for measuring student success in accomplishing those goals, and develop an action plan for improving student educational outcomes.
This process and the feedback from it are reviewed and approved by the College Assessment Review Committee and communicated to faculty within the college and to UNM.
