Assessment

At NC State University, assessment is considered an important tool that facilitates discussion about academic and student programs and provides useful information to guide continuous program improvement. We collaborate each year with the Office of Assessment within the Division of Academic & Student Affairs, to design and implement a successful assessment plan.
