Teaching and Learning: Evaluation and Improvement: Criterion 4 - Summary

4.S - Criterion 4 - Summary

The institution demonstrates responsibility for the quality of its educational programs, learning environments, and support services, and it evaluates their effectiveness for student learning through processes designed to promote continuous improvement.


ASU has engaged - and continues to engage - in vigorously, seriously, and conscientiously using measures of the performance of its academic and co-curricular programs to proactively enhance its offerings through a cycle of assessment, analysis, and improvement.

ASU has established student learning outcomes at the institutional, academic program, course, and co-curricular levels. In-depth assessments at all of these levels have provided data that have given insight into how well these programs meet their stated learning objectives and where improvements are needed. Data provided above show that this feedback, coupled with new additions to the tools and programs used to enhance student success (which also include assessment improvement processes), has led to substantial progress toward the ambitious, but attainable, goals for student retention, persistence, and graduation; hallmarks of the New American University.
