Institutional Changes Affecting Assessment

A consistent institution-wide grade scale system is clearly defined. Institutions strive to create a culture of assessment that entrenches assessment into policy frameworks, guides, change processes, and increases overall organizational sustainability around supporting student learning

This principle addresses the value of assessment in a broader sense, encouraging universities to create policies to support evidence-based decision making with respect to processes including curriculum development and review, and the recognition of teaching in faculty work.
