In addition to the policy-oriented studies that it designs and conducted by the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment, it also coordinates the academic program assessment projects and serves as a resource to the assessment activities across campus by providing technical and administrative supports. Currently, there are a number of outcome assessment programs in place including academic program outcome assessment, assessment of the institution's programs and services, and a variety of needs assessment projects
Academic program assessment: Assessment of the academic programs of the college is mandated by the SUNY System administration. In 1993, a campus-wide committee on assessment developed the SUNY Oswego Guidelines for the Assessment of Academic programs. The Guidelines were revised in 2003, (Appendix D). According to the guidelines, the responsibility for the definition, design, and conduct of the program assessment studies is within the academic unit that offers that program. Each academic department has now developed an assessment plan that includes the operational definition of the program(s), the identification of an instrument to measure the achievement of the intended outcomes, and a description of the method for conducting the assessment study. The IR&A Office has had the responsibility of coordinating the development of the plans and reporting on the implementation of the plans by the means of annual reports. The office has also provided technical and administrative support to the assessment process, including such things as conceptualizing assessment models data analysis and the development of assessment instruments for academic departments.

Institutional assessment: The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment has conducted, coordinated, or assisted in a number of assessment programs designed to assess the college's programs and services. The following are examples of assessment programs implemented by IR&A:
Students' Profile, comparison with national student samples.
Student Opinion Survey which measures student satisfaction with the programs and services of the institution.
Alumni Survey is designed to assess the academic programs of the college from the alumni's perspective it also provides data regarding the educational and professional attainment of alumni.
Assessment of the quality of the services provided to students by the college Health Center.
Assessment of the Publications Department, designed to measure the quality of the services provided by the Publications Department, and to measure the printing needs of the institution.
Evaluation of the Johnson Hall First Year Residential Experience is designed to measure the effectiveness of this new program.
Assessment of Hart Global Living and Learning Center to study outcomes of this innovation.
Assessment of Institutional Effectiveness designed to measure students' expectations and their satisfaction with how well their expectations are being met.
Retention Management System designed to quickly identify students who are most in need of help, to describe the general nature of their difficulties and to facilitate the establishment of initial contact.
Needs assessment: A series of studies have been or are being conducted presently that look at support for the development of new initiatives and / or the modification of existing programs and services. These studies are usually initiated by the director of the existing program or people considering the development of new programs. IR&A provides a range of services including the development of instruments to be used in the assessment, analysis of the data collected, or the conducting of the entire study. Some of the more recent needs assessment studies include assessment of Athletic Interest, the development of a Worksite Wellness Program, a needs assessment for a program to develop life skills, and an assessment of the need for a masters degree level program in social work.
