University-Wide Survey Reports

Academic assessment is a cyclical process of planning, systematic data collection, analysis, evaluation and action, which may include gathering evidence to enhance curricula, pedagogy and the student experience.  To this end, the Office of Accreditation, Assessment and Learning within the Office of the Provost oversees and coordinates the administration of a number of assessments, which (1) gauge student learning and practices associated with student success across students’ educational experiences, (2) assess faculty and staff experiences related to work and campus climate and (3) provide accountability and demonstrate compliance in external reporting and accreditation processes.  The purpose of conducting these assessments is to collect the data necessary to continuously improve the Kent State student and employee experience.
