Documenting Administrative Assessment
Administrative Assessment will be documented using the Department Assessment Report. This template follows the methods used at Belmont Abbey College and Baylor University, as well as concepts from the Logic Model. Similar templates are used at many other institutions for administrative and student learning outcome assessment. Filling out the template is the actual documentation of the Administrative Assessment. The reports and findings written down in the template are the key elements that will be reviewed and discussed for assessment.
The Department Assessment Report is an online form accessible through the Hunter College intranet. When the form is filled out, the data is counted and recorded into a web-database hosted at Hunter College.
The matrix below is an example of the information gathered by the Department Assessment Report:
|Hunter Mission Goals||Goals||Objectives||Strategies to Meet Objectives||Assessment Method||Timeline||Outcomes /Results||Feedback and Follow-Up Recommendations|
