The Office of Institutional Effectiveness provides leadership for assessment in both administrative and academic programs for the Alpine, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, and Uvalde campuses. Assessment at SRSU is conducted to ensure and provide evidence of continuous improvement.

SRSU utilizes a web-based assessment planning and management system named Improve, where all program coordinators use an established assessment template.

Academic Assessment

The assessment of educational programs and student learning-outcomes at Sul Ross is the responsibility of the academic Program Coordinators, in consultation with faculty members in each program. Each academic program has developed and implemented an assessment plan that clearly identifies expected student learning outcomes, assesses how well they achieve these outcomes, and documents their use of results to improve student learning.

Administrative Assessment

Academic colleges and departments and non-academic units also conduct annual assessments. Deans serve as assessment coordinators of colleges and Department Chairs serve as coordinators of academic departments.

Similar to academic assessments, outcomes, assessment methods and targets are tracked and evaluated, and documentation is provided for each goal. These assessments are completed and stored in the Nuventive System. The Institutional Effectiveness Coordinator manages the administrative assessment process.
