About University Assessment
Assessment allows us to investigate how well we are fulfilling our educational mission and to make data-driven decisions in both identifying effective curricula and considering whether or not curricula should be revised. Learn more about assessment at the University.
Assessing student learning
The University implemented a three-point assessment model, intended to measure student learning at the introductory, mid-, and senior levels in undergraduate degree program curricula. Program assessment must be reported annually. Get a step-by-step plan for undergraduate program assessment planning.
Core Curriculum assessment
The University of Nevada, Reno's competencies-based Core Curriculum trains students in communication, quantitative reasoning, methods of inquiry, critical and creative thinking, and integration, synthesis and application of knowledge. Get more information about Core Curriculum assessment.
Faculty assessment coordinators are required to submit an assessment plan (valid for the department's program review cycle) and an annual report for their respective degree-granting programs. Learn more about current assessment plans and reporting.
