Current Assessment Activities

Assessing our students’ learning is an important part of faculty work, both at the classroom level and at the program level.  Concordia faculty conduct annual program level assessment of student learning outcomes on all undergraduate majors, graduate, and post-baccalaureate programs.

Learning Outcome Assessment Reports

Concordia’s assessment activities include a full range of projects that gauge both student learning and the overall student experience.  Nationally normed surveys are administered to students on a regular basis in order to highlight areas of strength and make improvements in areas of weakness.  These assessment activities also allow us the opportunity to evaluate the prevalence of the CUW mission in the student experience.
