Academic Program Assessment

 
All degree-granting programs at Texas A&M University participate 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 the outcomes are achieved. Programs should use direct measures of assessment designed to evaluate the quality of student work aligned with 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.
