Academic Assessment

Faculty and staff at Rhode Island College are committed to meeting the mission of providing excellent academic and co-curricular programs. All major programs publish goals that articulate our expectations for student learning. Formative and summative assessment of student learning and programs help us to determine how well we have met our goals and make improvements. Students and graduates are expected, when requested, to submit examples of their work, respond to surveys and tests, and engage in discussions that enrich the collegiate environment and support our effort to strive for continuous improvement in the delivery of excellent academic programs. Faculty collect and analyze data to make program improvements as their contribution to this college-wide process.
