The purpose of assessment is to improve student learning at UNM whether in courses, programs of study or in co-curricular activity.
Assessment is a systematic process of
- articulating the knowledge, skills and dispositions we expect students to develop while here,
- gathering evidence about how well students have learned what we have said is important,
- interpreting the evidence to reveal patterns of learning strengths and weaknesses and
- modifying learning and teaching strategies to improve learning outcomes.
