Closing the Loop and Revising Mission and Outcomes Statements

Closing the Loop and Revising Mission and Outcomes Statements

Every successful assessment effort has to do it, but what does it mean to “close the loop”?  Who closes it and what is involved? 

The North Central response to VU’s Assessment Progress Report noted that VU’s plan is built around improvement.   This workshop explains what it means to “close the loop” and what is needed to successfully implement the requisite improvement projects.

The issue of why program faculty might want to adjust or redevelop the program mission statement and program learning outcomes will also be addressed.

This session will be helpful for all faculty participating in planned improvements, faculty responsible for program assessment oversight, new faculty, and program faculty who have completed recent curriculum changes.
