Assessment at ECU

The goal of assessment at East Carolina University (ECU) is to improve student learning and program quality through an iterative process of planning, evidence collection, reporting, analysis, and action. 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.

Mission: The mission of Institutional Assessment (IA) is to promote a culture of evidence-based decision making by providing assessment resources, guidance, and oversight. 

Learning Outcomes Website: ECU's Learning Outcome website provides the expected student learning outcomes for each of the university's degree or certificate programs.
