Assessment at Liberty University
Assessment Team Purpose Statement:
The Assessment team is a consulting group that supports the University’s efforts as an accredited institution to ensure and improve the quality of both curricular and co-curricular operations and the student experience through assessment, reporting, and training.
What does Assessment Look Like?
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research (IER) supports a University-wide effort to promote data-informed decision making that leads to:
- Improved Student Learning
- Improved Plans and Objectives
- Improved Programs & Services
- Informed Resource Allocation
To do this, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research assists the campus community of faculty, staff, and administration in the areas of accreditation, assessment, analysis, training, and information dissemination as they “Train Champions for Christ.” The reports created by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research showcase the assessments and accomplishments of Liberty University. Assessment is a community endeavor and requires a focused effort of the entire body to effectually improve student learning and development. The desire to improve the education experience must be a central goal of the leadership, faculty, staff, and supporting entities like IER to be effective.
