Office of Institutional Assessment

Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Institutional Assessment is to improve student learning and the quality of experience in academic and student service areas. Using assessment as a means, we facilitate data-driven decision making processes at the institutional and program levels. We strive to create a healthy culture of assessment at FSU that leads to continuous improvement.

Consultations and services include:

  • Facilitating data-driven conversations about student learning at the program and institutional levels
  • Identifying and finding relevant information about student learning to inform planning and data-driven decision making
  • Providing faculty and staff professional development in assessment theory, methodology and its processesĀ
