Office of Assessment & Operations
Who We Are
The Office of Assessment at Morgan State University supports the strategic mission of the institution by overseeing the evaluation of student learning on campus, facilitating the interpretation of data collected through these evaluations, and leading the application of assessment results to decision making, continuous quality improvement, and excellence in the student experience.
What We Do
The Office of Assessment works with the University Assessment Committee (UAC), the vice presidents, the deans, faculty, students, and staff to examine the student experience at Morgan State University, to identify and focus on areas of excellence, and opportunities for improvement. This work is accomplished through multiple methods including standardized testing, an annual cycle of undergraduate and graduate program assessment, program review, surveys, course evaluations, accreditation requirements, and special assessment projects.
The University Assessment Committee (UAC) consists of representatives from all segment of the University (e.g., Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, College, Schools, and Budget Management). The Committee reviews assessment plans for academic and non-academic programs and provide recommendations for plan and program improvements to department chairs, program directors, and departmental assessment coordinators. In addition, members of the UAC collaborate with General Education Program (GEP) Committee in developing, monitoring, and revising the university plan for assessing the general education learning outcomes.
