Assessment in the College of Visual and Performing Arts
In addition to undergoing periodic academic program review, each department in the College of Visual and Performing Arts develops and implements an assessment plan based on guidelines provided by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Each department then completes an annual assessment report as part of the annual reporting cycle. The assessment report template is used by all departments to ensure consistency of information and feedback is provided to the departments using the feedback form.
An important aspect of the assessment cycle is using assessment data to inform planning, make decisions, and enact change, often referred to as "closing the loop." Click here to see examples of how CPVA departments are using their data.
