Summer 2021 - Math Department

When Arkansas Tech commenced the HLC reaccreditation process in the Fall of 2018, departments across campus began building their evidence documents. The Math Department at Arkansas Tech was no exception. Kristi Spittler-Brown assisted in building a 70-page department assessment evidence document, which covered the overall mathematics success of the 2018-2019 academic year for the Russellville campus, Ozark campus, and Concurrent enrollers, as well as pre/post analysis, and remedial and gen-ed comparative analysis.




OUR Purpose

To serve as a resource and support for the assessment activities of the Arkansas Tech University community. 

Our Mission

The Office of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness (OAIE) facilitates the collaborative culture of assessment and continuous improvement of Arkansas Tech University’s academic and administrative programs and services. By providing resources and technical expertise to assist in the systematic development, review, and collection of data, the OAIE guides the university in the reflective practices that lead to evidence-based decision making.

What we do

The OAIE works with all academic and non-academic programs and administrative units in assessment efforts institution-wide. The office consults with institution constituencies on assessment matters through educational workshops and trainings, chairs student learning and institutional effectiveness assessment committees, and administers the assessment software, WEAVE. The Office also coordinates program reviews, accreditation processes and academies, provides support  for program planning and revision; and assists with special projects.
