All units within UTB/TSC engage in assessment to improve operations and the institution
retains documented evidence of program and service assessment data, analysis of the
data, and use of the results of the analyses to implement change and improve educational
programs, student learning outcomes, administrative support services and educational
support services. The process includes planning, implementation, assessment and
improvement and always benefits from the input of various stakeholders. UTB/TSC has
engaged in and recorded systematic and continuous assessment of its educational
programs since 1996. UTB/TSC identifies expected outcomes for educational programs,
assesses the attainment of those outcomes, and analyzes and acts upon the results as the
basis for improvement of academic programs. As an institution offering an array of
programs ranging from certificates of completion to a doctoral degree, each program’s
key performance indicators are tailored based on the level (i.e., associate’s vs. graduate
degrees) and the major offering. Programs use best practices adopted from external
accrediting regulatory agencies that establish industry standards and measures, accepted
discipline-specific criteria established through benchmarking, or accepted practices
specific to each field. The central role of program assessment within the institutional
effectiveness process is essential to UTB/TSC’s ability to demonstrate excellence and the
achievement of its institutional mission.
All learning outcome assessment plans, results, and use of results are held in a password
protected site for institutional users only. The university is currently developing a comprehensive general education assessment plan that is designed to document the extent which undergraduates have attained the six college level general education competencies identified and mandated by the State of Texas, including critical thinking skills, communication skills, empirical and quantitative skills, teamwork, social responsibility, and personal responsibility. The new general education core curriculum will not be fully implemented until fall 2014 and competency assessment results not available until after one full year of implementation.
