To serve as a resource and support for the assessment activities of the Arkansas Tech University community.
University Assessment and Accreditation (UAA) 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, UAA guides the university in the reflective practices that lead to evidence-based decision making in annual on-going assessment of student learning as well as in review of programs for individual and institutional accreditation purposes.
UAA 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 academic support 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.
