Student/Academic Support Unit Assessment
The purpose of student life assessment and student and academic (StAc) support unit assessment is to evaluate and improve the support services offered by the University to students and faculty. Assessment for these units combines elements from each of the other areas of assessment, including: student learning/success outcomes, general education outcomes, and administrative/operational outcomes. At Baylor, these departments largely fall under the Division of Student Life and the Paul L. Foster Success Center.
Annual Assessment Reports
Student and academic support units and student life units use similar report template as academic units. Usually, there are more administrative outcomes assessed, with one or more student learning/success outcomes added as appropriate to the mission of the unit. The templates function as executive summaries that highlight important elements of the requirements, but also allow departments to attach appendices that may be more useful for internal purposes.
