Kansas State University Learning Outcomes

The Office of Assessment believes in a cooperative approach focused on student-centered learning.  Within a culture of trust and shared responsibility, faculty and student life professionals—with participation from students, administrators, alumni and K-State constituents—develop and implement ongoing and systematic assessment strategies to understand what, how much, and how students learn in order to continuously improve learning outcomes.  To assist faculty, the Office of Assessment provides support, resources, and training to help department and unit faculty develop and implement assessment practices tailored to their own needs.  Read more about the culture of assessment at K-State.     

The Office of Assessment supports continuous improvement processes through facilitation of meaningful assessment of student learning and effective methods for feedback and action in response to assessment results by:
  • Consulting with and supporting faculty and staff in planning, conducting, and maintaining college/department/unit assessment activities
  • Coordinating university-wide assessment activities
  • Serving as a general resource on assessment issues
  • Working on a variety of special projects, as requested
