Annual Report to the Provost

The annual report to the Provost is due at the end of the spring semester. In order to help you respond to the Learning Outcomes section of the report, the Learning Assessment Team (LAT) has put together this sample report.

Learning Assessment Team

The Learning Assessment Team (LAT), formed in 2009, aims to strengthen outcomes assessment across the campus both in quality and ease of implementation by promoting and facilitating the sharing of resources, best practices, expertise, and assessment experiences. This collaborative approach is intended to reduce labor, raise the overall quality of assessment, support Assessment Coordinators, and recognize and utilize faculty with discipline- or methods-specific assessment expertise. Members provide feedback to the Provost and departments on the status of programs' assessment.
