Administrative Outcomes Assessment
Administrative effectiveness supports institutional success through a reflective process that allows administrative units to define meaningful outcomes to measure the effectiveness of their services and activities for continuous improvement.
Administrative outcomes align with the divisional and institutional mission, focus on the central purposes of the unit, and reflect meaningful and manageable expectations for the unit to achieve and track on a continual basis.
Units follow a regular process of collecting data and assessing outcomes using multiple measures, which may include a combination of direct measures and indirect measures. Data collected through this process are analyzed and summarized in an assessment document based on the Administrative Outcomes Template.
Administrative outcomes assessment documents are submitted to the Office of Institutional Assessment and Accreditation for peer-review. IAA hosts several charrette events for all administrative units, in which units have the opportunity to discuss, reflect, and receive feedback on their assessment process or documentation from other administrative units.
