Alum Success

Elaina Marinik

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

Shared Governance Assessment is an iterative process

Assessment Committee

<< Institutional Assessment

Welcome

The Assessment Committee is one of the Strategic Committees of the University, charged with assessment oversight, promotion and support for both academic and instutional support operations. Academic assessment is an on-going, open, evaluative process focused on improving student learning.  It requires the University to make its learning expectations clear to students and to establish appropriate learning outcomes at the course and program levels.  It helps determine how well student performance matches the expected outcomes.  The resulting information is used to inform changes in courses and programs for the improvement of student learning.

TracDat is LSSU's choice of a relational database to aggregate assessment data

Tracdat is our centralized assessment database, designated to archive assessment findings and provide reporting tools for instituitonal analysis and action. http://lssu.tracdat.com
