Assessment 

Assessment is the process of defining, selecting, designing, collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and using information to increase students' learning and development. It includes discussions about what should be assessed and how information will be used, not just the hands-on testing of students. 
 --T.D. Erwin, (1991) Assessing Student Learning and Development
San Francisco: Jossey-Bass


Why are assessments done?

College and universities have come under increasing pressure from their various constituencies to demonstrate their effectiveness in measurable terms. The federal government, state legislatures, state boards of education, accrediting associations, boards of control, parents and families, students and the general public are demanding better results and greater accountability from higher education.
