Assessment of Student Learning

Assessment of Student Learning at OSU Institute of Technology is an essential part of the continuous process of enhancing and improving curricular and co-curricular student learning.

It is driven by the college’s mission and vision statements. Suskie (2009) defines assessment, utilized by OSUIT in a four-step assessment and summer revision process, as ". . . the ongoing process of: Establishing clear, measurable expected outcomes of student learning; Ensuring that students have sufficient opportunities to achieve those outcomes; Systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well student learning matches our expectations; [and] Using the resulting information to understand and improve student learning" (p. 4). Assessment is one way that schools and programs affirm their strengths and plan improvements that contribute to the College’s overall effectiveness.
