Assessment Support


What is Assessment?

The two main types of assessment at WCU are Course Assessment and Program Assessment. Course Assessment evaluates the effectiveness of instruction whereas Program Assessment evaluates if a program serves its intended purpose.


Making better use of assessment data improves the value of any course or program in the following ways:

  • Stronger course design
  • Thorough analysis of assessment data
  • Effective education about assessment tools
  • Better understanding of assessment processes
  • Increased usability of assessment results 


Assessment Support is available to all instructors.
