Research and Assessment

Assessment is a tool for reflection and improvement. Assessing our constituents helps us ask important questions about teaching and learning, discover whether what we are doing is effective, experiment with new approaches, and evaluate whether what we and our students are doing is actually resulting in the knowledge, skills, and dispositions we believe are critical.
