Course, Program, and Institutional Assessment
Assessment of student learning occurs at each of these levels – within courses, within programs, and within the institution as a whole. In fact, thoughtful assessment can promote coherence and alignment across all three levels.
The Center for Teaching & Learning provides resources to faculty to assess student learning within individual courses. The Center was founded to support faculty in their various roles and responsibilities as educators at Stonehill. It exists to advance excellence in learning, teaching, and assessment through programs meant to support faculty development and research in the scholarship of teaching and learning.
The Office of Academic Assessment has primary responsibility for assessment of student learning at the programmatic level, and supports continuous improvement of academic program review, senior transitions and graduate outcomes. The Director works closely with Department Chairs and Program Directors to develop and implement manageable and meaningful program-level assessment plans.
The Office of Planning & Institutional Research provides institutional data about student learning by collecting and providing timely, reliable college-related data to internal and external audiences.
