Concord University’s assessment of student academic achievement is used to make informed curricular and instructional decisions for the purpose of improving student learning. Concord University has an ongoing assessment program that is closely tied to the University’s mission and its educational goals.
Concord University believes that assessment is critical to the success of academic programs and student learning. Currently, the University Director of Assessment oversees and organizes assessment activities. A campus-wide University Assessment Committee (UAC) comprised of representatives from administration, academic support units, departments, student affairs, and the student government reviews assessment plans/reports and acts as a resource for program assessment.
