Assessment matters

Quality assessment is essential to improving student learning.  Through the use of both direct and indirect evidence of student achievement, assessments guide collective actions for improvements in teaching, academic supports, and curricula. 

The Office of Assessment believes in an approach that 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.

We’re here to help
