If you'd like help in any area of your assessment, contact one of our assessment consultants. The purpose of assessment consultants are to provide information and resources regarding the development of learning outcome statements for their assigned outcome to all departments and programs within the Division of University Affairs. They serve as a resource to any area who wishes to develop and measure the learning outcome which they oversee. They serve as the content expert to the assessment committee, are the primary evaluator of their specified learning outcome, and author the section of the Beyond the Classroom Report which pertains to their outcome.
