Assessment & Accreditation: About Us

What Does the Assessment Department Do?

Under the leadership of the Institutional Effectiveness, the Assessment department is providing guidance on setting meaningful, measurable, and manageable goals for both instructional and non-instructional units across campus.

Assessment is under the Institutional Effectiveness umbrella.

How Will We Provide These Services?

We will be identifying ways to support the use of our Nuventive Improve database to track program learning outcomes. One-on-one meetings are available for follow-up on creating goals. Zoom drop-in hours support during finals week to help with reporting. Zoom link, dates, and times will be posted.

What Value Are We Bringing?

We value the effectiveness of “closing the loop” with assessment efforts. We are here to help bridge broken relationships with “data” across all units and create a culture of assessment to ensure student success and completion. While aligning unit goals to the University’s Strategic Plan for Regional Accreditation efforts.

What Will Assessment Results Do For EWU?

Assessment results will bring to light challenges and triumphs to every instructional and non-instructional unit. The results will not bring any detrimental decisions. They will be used to pivot practices to align with the Strategic Plan and ensure we are providing diversity, equity, and inclusion to our region of students.

Mission and Vision

Mission: Create bridges in assisting programs, departments, and stakeholders in producing and creating meaningful, measurable, and manageable goals to align with EWU’s mission to Expand Opportunities for Personal Transformation Through Excellence in Learning.

Vision: Create robust and well thought assessment plans that will reinforce actions that demonstrate success and create space to pivot when actions are less effective for students in their journey to completion.
