Academic Assessment

General Education Assessment

All students at Southeastern are required to successfully complete a variety of assessment activities. Students from all undergraduate classifications (freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior) are selected to participate in university-wide mid-level testing either on assessment day, or in targeted courses, each semester. University-wide assessment examines the general education skills of students in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science reasoning, and critical thinking. Students selected for mid-level assessment are notified that their enrollment in the following semester will be delayed if they fail to successfully complete the assessment test when notified. Students also are required to complete departmental assessments in general education courses; this assessment will target specific learning outcomes addressed by each course (see Appendix I). In addition to the above activities, students may be required to respond to surveys and submit samples of their work for portfolios.

Academic Program Assessment

Southeasternā€™s annual academic assessment process is used to better understand and improve student learning. Evidence revealed from the assessments is used to make informed decisions about program outcomes, curriculum, teaching format, and future assessments. The relationship of the program goals and student outcomes with Southeasternā€™s mission and strategic vision is also explored. Southeasternā€™s assessment system also ensures that the institution is meeting the requirements set forth by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and the standards as defined by our institutional accrediting agency, the Higher Learning Commission.

Step One is to establish the broad goals for your program aligned with your programā€™s mission statement.
Step Two is to articulate program-level student learning outcomes.
Step Three is identify appropriate assessment methods.
Step Four is to gather and interpret the evidence.
Step Five is to decide if changes are needed based on the assessment findings.
Begin again with Step One.Ā
