    In an effort to establish a definitive baseline of assessment practices in each academic program across the University’s colleges and schools, the Assessment Group within the Office of Institutional Research, Assessment and Effectiveness conducted an inventory of assessment activities. One-hundred sixty-eight programs completed the inventory, 95 Aundergraduate and 73 graduate.


  • Program Level Outcomes

    Undergraduate program level outcomes define what students in each discipline will know and be able to do by the time they graduate from Drexel.
