Assessing Student Learning
The commitment of each of the schools and campuses of the University of Pittsburgh to excellence in instruction requires a comparable commitment to a culture of assessment through which we continually evaluate the success of our educational programs and feed the results of those assessments back into our academic planning processes. Therefore the University of Pittsburgh will undertake an initiative as outlined in the document passed by the Council of Deans on November 9, 2006, through which we will document our assessment processes, develop new assessment procedures where warranted, and establish standards that enable us to assure ourselves and our many constituencies that these processes are effective and adequate to ensure continuing improvement in the quality and effectiveness of our academic programs.
