Arkansas Tech University recognizes the importance of continuous improvement. To achieve a culture of continuous improvement we implemented an Assessment grant process in 2003. The Assessment Committee designated funds from the student assessment fee in order to encourage innovative projects assessing student learning. In 2007, the Committee developed a process to monitor and share continuous improvement assessment reports with university personnel and recommended that academic departments and university units submit assessment grants and their assessment results to the Assessment Committee. Successful grant applicants can obtain up to $5,000 for assessment purposes. The assessment grant process promotes student learning, faculty development, and institutional effectiveness. Questions about the grant application process should be conveyed to Dr. Monica Varner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grant reports are stored by implementation year under Results & Data.
