Ancell Assessment Program Information
The Ancell School of Business is committed to the assessment of student learning for purposes of the ongoing improvement of student learning, curriculum, programs, and services offered by the School of Business and for accreditation.
Assessment activities at ASB may take the form of surveys, standardized tests, program evaluation forms, focus groups, student reflective activities, or any of a variety of other forms. Assessments may be administered both inside and outside of the classroom. Some assessments may be voluntary; others may be required.
Assessment-related data are kept confidential for individual students and are released only in aggregate form. Unless the assessment tool is also part of the assignments for a course, student performance in the assessment activity does not affect course grades or progress toward graduation. As part of some assessments, students may receive a report on their performance.
