Academic Assessment

Academic programs and certain certificate programs are required to identify student learning outcomes, and map those outcomes to their curriculum through a curriculum map. Programs will assess one outcome per year and report on that assessment in Mason’s assessment management system. (Tk20 has been retired. A new tool to be announced by Spring 2023.)


Annual Assessment Templates

All academic and student support units must enter the unit’s mission statement, goals, objectives, methods and measures, results and analysis, and improvement plans as shown in the templates below.
