The Office of Assessment was created in 2000 to respond to an ever increasing level of concern from students, the Board of Regents (BOR), accrediting agencies, and other government agencies, that universities are to have: an effective means for assessing student learning outcomes (SLOs), effective assessment procedures, and methods for feedback and change based on the assessment process.
* The Regents Enrollment and Graduation Information System (REGIS) utilizes the Internet to deliver occupational information in a convenient, easily accessible format. Specifically, users are able to construct ad hoc queries to access enrollment and graduation information for students in any one of the six Regents higher education institutions. For example, an employer considering relocation to Kansas could see at a glance the number of 1998 computer science graduates from Wichita State University. Or, a hospital administrator planning future staffing needs could access the number of students majoring in nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, and medicine across the state.
