Assessment at UALR

The purpose of Assessment Central is to showcase what we are doing to promote teaching excellence and accountability to our stakeholders, both on and off campus. Assessment at UALR helps academic programs (core, undergraduate, or graduate) achieve their student learning and teaching effectiveness goals.  It is part of the ongoing scholarship of teaching and learning that is at the center of our educational mission.

Assessment and Accreditation

The UALR Assessment Academy Team consists of eight individuals who are committed to working together with faculty, staff and administrators to create a comprehensive and ongoing program of campus assessment of student learning outcomes. Team members represent faculty from each college, both accredited and non-­‐accredited programs, the Council on Core Curriculum and Policies, co-­‐curricular programs, the Quality Initiative on data-­‐supported decision making, and the Provost’s Program Review Assessment Pilot Group (PPRAPG). Over the next four years, the Team will also serve, with other individuals, on the HLC Self-­‐Study Task Force for Criteria 3 and 4. It is the vision of the UALR Assessment Academy Team to work with faculty, staff and administrators to build a culture of continuous improvement at UALR. More on Role and Vision of the Assessment Academy Team.
