Assessment

The SOLES Office of Assessment works closely with faculty, staff, students, administrators, and community partners to design assessment instruments, collect pertinent information, and analyze data. This collaborative effort of assessment demonstrates our belief in a culture of evidence to ensure academic quality to the satisfaction of all educational stakeholders.

Transparency for Future Students and Stakeholders

Programs within the School of Leadership and Education Sciences at the University of San Diego are committed to providing students with a high quality education. We support the transparency of assessment findings so that potential students and internal/external stakeholder groups have data to make informed decisions about our programs.

Data Driven Decision Making

Data collected within each department are used by faculty, staff, and administrators to make decisions regarding curriculum, instruction, and program improvement. Exit and Alumni Survey data are collected for each department/program and the most current reports are posted on this site. The SOLES Office of Assessment is currently working with faculty, staff, and administrators to formalize the process for reporting program/student learning outcomes and related findings; these documents will be posted on this site as soon as they are finalized.
