Slide 15: Benefit 1: Faculty become primary decision-makers

Slide 15 of 26


Because assessment lies largely in the hands of faculty they have the opportunity to become the primary decision makers about their educational programs.

This involves faculty:

  • setting their own goals depending on what they see their program valuing,
  • identifying processes they feel meaningfully assess those goals,
  • making their own determinations about whether students are meeting their goals, and
  • developing their own recommendations (often with the backing of strong evidence) for future improvements.
