The goal of the assessment process is to use assessment evidence to improve the learning experience and ensure students are graduating with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for success in their future careers or studies.

The role of the Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment team within the Office Institutional Research and Planning is to partner with faculty and administrators at all levels of the university to oversee and support assessment activities for undergraduate and graduate degrees, certificates and General Education. The assessment team also supports undergraduate disciplinary and multi-campus programs in their efforts to align programs taught at multiple Ohio State locations. Our goal is to provide guidance that will result in assessment activities that are meaningful and useful to all stakeholders.
