Institutional Assessment


In 2004, NWOSU planned and implemented an assessment program with the goal of assessing administrative areas for continuous improvement. All Northwestern institutional areas (financial aid, registry, libraries, etc.) submit an annual assessment plan using a template created in LiveText, a web-based data management system, to assist in streamlining and supporting institutional effectiveness.

Annually, at the beginning of the fall semester, each institutional area identifies goals, proposes assessment strategies, and provides anticipated outcomes. At the end of the academic year, the areas report their results, budget implications and to whom the information was reported. Based on the findings, institutional areas may carry their goals to the next year or plan new projects/goals in order to continuously improve the institutional area.
