Documenting and Benchmarking the NMU Outcomes Assessment Process

The goal of this project is to review and revise the means by which departments use the data they collect and devise a mechanism by which these reports and plans are reviewed, so that we can “close the loop” of the quality improvement cycle of “plan, do, check and act”.

Assessment and accountability are increasingly important topics in higher education.  Universities are asking to demonstrate their accountability to a variety of internal and external stakeholders.  An external consultant will help us make progress towards this goal.  This Action Project will permit NMU to continue to perfect its current assessment processes in both academic and service departments across campus.
