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.
Each organization on campus has reached a consensus about their mission, goals, and objectives of their program. Every unit at UALR has an assessment process in place that is used to make decisions to improve its operation. In that process, students, alumni, and various stakeholders participate in a variety of assessment activities designed to evaluate the organization’s mission accomplishment.
