Assessment of student learning occurs at the baccalaureate level (assessment of our Core Curriculum), the program level, the course level and within our co-curricular learning programs. The Mount’s assessment plan is administered by a standing committee of ECFA, the academic assessment committee, and overseen by the Academic Assessment Coordinator.
A complementary initiative to assess the effectiveness of programming with the Student Affairs division is overseen by the Dean of Students, Janet Cox. Results are posted in the Student Affairs Assessment Documents page.
