Program Assessment

About Program Assessment

Primarily, program assessment throughout the university is overseen by The University Assessment Committee (UAC).  The UAC is a standing committee appointed by the OU Senate, and has been charged with 5 primary tasks:

  1. To coordinate and advise on the planning and implementation of assessment by academic units;
  2. To prepare an overall University Assessment Plan which meets the requirements of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and to consult with the staff of that Association, as appropriate, to insure that the Plan and its implementation continue to meet Association standards;
  3. To advise and cooperate with the General Education Committee in planning and carrying out assessment of the University's general education programs;
  4. To advise the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the University Committee on Undergraduate Instruction, and the Graduate Council on the findings of the assessment program and their implications for specific program reviews and for maintaining and improving the quality of undergraduate and graduate instruction in general; and
  5. To report to the University Senate and the Assemblies of the organized faculties on the findings of the assessment program and their implications for maintaining and improving the quality of undergraduate and graduate curricula and instruction at the University.
