Academic Assessment

Academic assessment is the systematic process of gathering, analyzing, and using information about student learning to improve the learning process. It is an essential component of quality improvement and accountability for all departments and academic programs at UW-Whitewater.

A comprehensive system of assessment provides departments and programs with the data they need to make evidence-based decisions and also forms the basis for rich faculty, staff, and student discussions about ways to improve teaching, learning, and department/program function.
