Program Assessment

What is Program Assessment? Program assessment can mean different things to different people and in different contexts. In the Manning School of Business, assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of the undergraduate program and thereby producing the strongest graduates possible.

We want to make our expectations explicit and public; setting high standards for learning quality; systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting the data and then reporting the results.

We believe it is critical to create a shared academic culture dedicated to the assurance of learning. And overseeing this culture of learning is the Assurance of Learning Committee.

The Assurance of Learning Committee (AOL): This group is charged with facilitating assessment efforts across the Manning School of Business. The committee is made up of the Associate Dean, the Director for the Graduate Programs and all of the Graduate Program Coordinators.
