Assessment at ECU

All educational programs and support units conduct ongoing assessment and analysis of outcomes according to the ECU Institutional Effectiveness Assessment Process which outlines the annual assessment reporting and review cycles, defines the required components of the assessment report, and describes the purpose and scope of the Institutional Assessment Advisory Council.
