Academic Program Assessment
Every degree-granting program at Texas A&M University participates in the assessment of student learning outcomes. Faculty members should identify the imperative learning outcomes demonstrated by students receiving the degree and measure the extent to which they are achieved. Programs should use direct measures of assessment designed to evaluate the quality of student work aligned to specific learning outcomes.
The purpose of student learning outcomes assessment is to use the results to improve curriculum and/or pedagogy. Academic programs utilize WEAVEonline
to annually report their assessment results and corresponding 'action plans' based on their findings.
