The Office of Assessment & Academic Program Review provides institutional level reports regarding the University’s comprehensive assessment program. These reports are shared with the UNM community to evidence the institution’s oversight and evaluation of the assessment infrastructures, processes, and practices at the program and college/school/branch levels. Additionally, these reports serve to highlight the institution’s commitment to maintaining a culture of improvement at UNM by providing feedback to the UNM community regarding action steps and improvements 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.
