High-quality assessment is essential to improving student learning. Through the use of both direct and indirect sources of evidence of student achievement, assessments guide collective actions for improvements in teaching, academic supports, and curricula.
A culture of assessment
The Office of Assessment believes in an approach the links learning from coursework to programmatic and university learning expectations. Within a culture of trust and shared responsibility, faculty and student life professionals develop and implement ongoing and systematic assessments —with participation from students, administrators, alumni and K-State constituents— to understand what and how much students learn. The purpose is to continuously improve curriculum, instruction, and learning. To assist faculty, the Office of Assessment provides support, resources, and training to help develop and implement assessment practices tailored to faculty and programmatic needs.
