Teaching Outside at ASU

Our department serves the university community by reporting internally consistent and accurate information and by conducting analysis which facilitates strategic planning, accreditation, and enrollment management initiatives while assisting in the assessment and continuous improvement of institutional effectiveness, academic programs, and student learning.

Improving Student Learning


Assessment is a type of action research to help gather indicators that will be useful for improving student learning through our curriculum and teaching strategies. It focuses on student learning and what the student will be able to do and not so much on what we are going to teach.

Student Right-to-Know

The Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 requires all institutions participating in Federal Student Aid Programs to disclose basic information such as graduation rates for all entering freshmen, campus security policies, and campus crime statistics.
