Institutional Assessment Overview

"The effectiveness of the University relies on the contribution that each of the University’s programs and services makes towards achieving the goals of the institution as a whole" ~ (MSCHE Standard 7)

Institutional Assessment is the systematic collection, review, and use of information about educational quality, undertaken for the purpose of improving programs, services, student learning and development.  Institutional assessment is the process that supports the university’s answer to the overall institutional effectiveness question: how well are we achieving our mission and goals?

RIT’s Institutional Assessment Framework provides an overview of our core assessment processes and elements. The framework has four integrated elements which power RIT’s institutional assessment efforts: Strategic Vision, Planning for Assessment, Implementation, and Use of Results for Continuous Improvement.
