Student Services Outcomes

Assessment Bulletin

November 2022

A special publication from the Office of Institutional Assessment and Accreditation to support student and academic support units in defining and assessing meaningful outcomes for continuous improvement. 

Let's Charrett-e-brate!


Hello friends,

IAA is holding Student Services Outcomes Charrettes in November and early December to provide an opportunity for units to receive peer feedback and learn more about Student Services Outcomes assessment across the university.

A "charrette" (Fr.), meaning small cart, represents an intensive creative effort in a limited time period. Our Student Services Outcomes Charrette is a unique, interactive workshop that provides staff with a chance to review and discuss their assessment documents and share ideas for making improvements on student outcomes. Individuals work with a small group in short rotations to read and respond to others' assessment documents. This is a great source of ideas and inspiration for the Spring 2023 semester!
