Learning & Assessment at CSUEB
CSUEB is committed to supporting a Culture of Inquiry and Evidence in the service of ongoing development of our educational community. The role of assessment is to ask the questions:
- "What are our learning objectives?"
- "How do we plan to achieve those objectives?"
- "How are we doing in achieving our objectives?"
The evidence collected in answering these questions provides feedback to the campus community about success in meeting learning objectives as well as highlighting opportunities for change and improvement. With the support of the Academic Senate Committee on Academic Planning and Review (CAPR) and the Office of Academic Programs, faculty and staff establish institutional, program and student learning outcomes; develop and implement assessment plans for curricular and co-curricular activities; carry out systematic program review; and communicate findings for use in program improvement. Please visit the portfolio page for any of our programs to see evidence of the learning that is taking place at our university.
The CSUEB Learning & Assessment Handbook is a cooperative effort of the Office of Academic Programs, the Office of Testing and Asssessment, the Educational Effectiveness Council, the Committee on Academic Planning and Review (CAPR), and the Institutional Learning Outcomes subcommittee of CAPR. Additional faculty resources for learning and assessment are available via the Office of Faculty Development and MATS (Media and Technology Support Services).
