Assessment of Program Learning Outcomes
At UW-Stevens Point, the assessment of student learning is intended to provide
the foundation for all academic planning and decision-making. The
ultimate goal of assessment is to ensure the continuous improvement of
student learning by refining the courses, programs, and policies that
make student learning possible.
The review and evaluation of student learning in academic programs of study is the responsibility of the Assessment Subcommittee, which
resides under the Common Council’s Academic Affairs Committee. Departments should consult the Reporting Cycle for Assessment and Department Review 2011-2021 (revised May, 2016)
for the most up-to-date information regarding the reporting cycle.
