Student Learning Outcomes Assessment OfficeProgress Report 4 (Last Quarter-based Progress Report)
RIT will use the same progress report survey to collect program level outcomes assessment data for the 2012-13 academic year, the final year of quarter program assessment. Staff are also working with two colleges (COS and GCCIS) to pilot the completion of a modified progress report using RIT's assessment management system, Taskstream. To close out this last year of quarter program assessment, all surveys will be launched in November (rather than February). Please contact the SLOA office, either online or by calling 475-2310 with any questions regarding the adjusted progress report timeline.Adjusted Progress Report Timeline:
