Continuous Process of Assessment

Assessment is a continuous process that is embedded in the culture of the institution and curriculum (at the program and course-level), as opposed to a course component meant solely to finalize a specific unit of student learning

Reflect on how assessment results can contribute to critical analyses that help identify bottlenecks or gaps to enhance a course or program learning experience.
