Welcome
Welcome to the College of Arts & Sciences Assessment web site. This site contains information about both learning objective assessment and the five-year program review process, as well as other assessment-related items.  Some of the areas are publicly-accessible, however pages containing information about assessment activities in specific departments and programs require an SJU login and password to access.

The goals of the CA&S Assessment Program are:
  1. To aid departments and programs in the development and periodic evaluation of student learning goals and objectives, both within the context of the major/minor and as part of General Education.

  2. To facilitate the development and implementation of assessment mechanisms within departments and programs to measure student success in attaining the stated learning goals and objectives relating to their major/minor.

  3. To facilitate the development and implementation, in collaboration with the Haub School of Business, of assessment mechanisms to measure student success in attaining the stated learning goals and objectives relating to the General Education Requirements.

  4. To assist departments and programs in the process of self-evaluation, external review and strategic planning as part of the five-year institutional program review process.

  5. To provide a venue by which information about assessment can be shared throughout the college.
