Assessment Findings at UND
All UND programs (curricular and co-curricular) are expected to provide interpretation of their assessment results. This interpretation helps develop an action plan, which is the final step in the assessment process.
At UND, we aspire for all curricular and co-curricular programs to provide:
- an interpretation of all results
- conclusions that clearly align with student learning outcomes
- descriptions of how results are discussed with key stakeholders
