Academic support assessment

 Academic support offices at ATU use assessment for improvement in professional practice in two ways:

  1. annual assessment plans
  2. comprehensive program review (every 5-7 years)

These processes are supported through guidance and review by the Institutional Effectiveness Assessment (IEA) Committee.

Annual Assessment

Academic support offices complete an annual assessment plan, following the ATU assessment plan cycle. Each plan includes one to three objectives that support the office and/or department mission and are assessed for three to five cycles to ensure continuous improvement. Units are required to enter their plans into the Weave software platformThese plans support the unit’s comprehensive program review. 

Comprehensive Program Review

Academic Support units complete a self-assessment program review every five to seven years following the guidelines of the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS). An assessment schedule is shown below.

Units scheduled to complete CAS self-assessment are contacted by the OAIE and assigned an IEA committee member liaison for assistance. The appropriate CAS Self-Assessment Guide (SAG) is provided at that time. Units are required to enter their CAS SAG report into the Weave software platform.

Learn more about the program review process by downloading the Academic Support Assessment Processes document.
