Assessment of Programs or Projects

  Programs and projects may be assessed for a variety of reasons, such as monitoring implementation, providing feedback for ongoing improvement, or determining effectiveness. OIRA staff members are available to work with faculty and staff on the various components of the assessment process, including clarifying goals and outcomes, identifying appropriate data collection strategies, developing assessment tools, collecting and processing data, analyzing and interpreting data, reporting results, and promoting effective use of the findings.
