"The Exercise Science program at LSSU definitely prepared me for a career in the clinical field. The background experiences that I attained from my placements and internships helped me spearhead the development of a cardiac rehab program in Sault Ste Maire, ON. I feel that my degree at LSSU paved the way for my career today."

LSSU Definition of Assessment

Assessment of the total student learning experience at Lake Superior State University encompasses the aspects of both academics and operational support. 

 Academic assessment is an ongoing, 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, program and university 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.

 Operational support assessment is an ongoing, open, evaluative process focused on improving university culture and services.  It requires the University to make its service and cultural expectations clear to its stakeholders, and to establish appropriate outcomes at each level of operation.  It helps determine how well performance matches the expected outcomes.  The resulting information is used to inform changes at the unit and university levels for the improvement of the student learning experience.
