Institutional

The Office of Assessment provides several institutional level reports regarding the University’s comprehensive assessment program. These reports are shared with the UNM community not only to demonstrate the institution’s oversight and evaluation of the assessment infrastructures, processes, and practices at the program and college/school/branch levels but also to highlight the institution’s participation in and commitment to maintaining a culture of improvement at UNM by providing feedback to the UNM community regarding action steps and improvements that are implemented at the institutional level. The following reports are based on internal and external measures that are used to review, assess, and evaluate the assessment endeavors of UNM’s academic programs, administrative units, and General Education Program (also known as the UNM Core Curriculum).

Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA+)

This report is based on a standardized assessment that measures growth in undergraduates’ Core general education skills. It measures skills associated with critical thinking, writing, analytical reasoning, and problem solving. The purpose of the CLA+ is to demonstrate the impact of UNM’s General Education Program on student learning on the main campus at the institutional level. It was administered during the fall semester to freshmen and the spring semester to seniors.


ACT Collegiate Assessment of Academic Proficiency (CAAP)

This assessment is a standardized assessment that measures growth in undergraduates’ Core general education skills. It includes test modules that measures students’ general education skills in reading, critical thinking, writing, analytical reasoning, and problem solving. The purpose of the ACT CAAP is to demonstrate the impact of UNM’s General Education Program on student learning across all five campuses at the institutional level. The ACT CAAP is a replacement of the CLA+. The Reading and Mathematics test modules are administered during the fall semesters to undergraduates who have completed the requirements of UNM’s General Education Program (also known as the UNM Core Curriculum).

ACT WorkKeys Assessment

This assessment is a job skills assessment system that helps employers select, hire, train, develop, and retain a high-performance workforce. This series of tests measures foundational and soft skills and offers specialized assessments to target institutional needs. Successful completion of ACT WorkKeys assessments in Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information can lead to earning ACT National Career Readiness Certificate (ACT NCRC), a portable credential earned by more than 2.3 million people across the United States. In order to demonstrate UNM’s impact on the development of students’ workforce skills, the Office of Assessment focuses on the administration of the three test modules associated with the ACT NCRC during the fall semesters as well as on the workforce readiness of our seniors and students at the branch campuses who have completed more than 46 semester credit hours towards an associate degree.
