The word "assessment" is not always met with an open mind and a willingness to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of our academic programs. But the reality is assessment can be a useful tool that not only improves student learning, but empowers faculty as well. Assessment is an ongoing process, one necessary for continuous improvement.
