University Assessment Committee Update - December 7, 2015

The University Assessment Committee is charged with providing recommendations to the Provost and Academic Council on issues relating to institution-wide and program-specific assessment of academic and student development programs at the University. This year, the UAC has four subcommittees:

  • ILO Subcommittee - In preparation for the WASC reaccreditation, this subcommittee is looking at our institutional learning objectives to determine whether or not to revise or reaffirm them. 
  • WASC Core Competency Plan Subcommittee - In preparation for the WSCUC (formerly WASC) reaccreditation, this subcommittee is making a plan to assess all five core competencies and will then work on implementing the plan.
  • Taskstream Subcommittee - This subcommittee is charged with assisting the TaskStream project manager with the implementation of Taskstream and anticipating any questions that faculty might have. Taskstream is live, and some programs have begun to input their assessment plans. Training is available in person or via a live web meeting. Please contact Nicole Omansky,, for information. An FAQ and at-a-glance training documents are being created and will be available in January through the UAC web page.
  • Communications Subcommittee - This subcommittee is determining ways to share the activities of UAC as well as other assessment-related activities with faculty and staff.

The UAC is also committed to fostering a culture of assessment at the University by delivering programs on faculty development in assessment, by giving feedback to programs and departments regarding their assessment plans, and promoting the scholarship of teaching, learning and assessment. Last October, UAC sponsored the Assessment Basics workshop. Slides for the workshop are available here.
