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 our centralized assessment database, designated to archive assessment findings and provide reporting tools for instituitonal analysis and action. http://lssu.tracdat.com
2012 - Three Targeted Assessment Project mini-grants were funded for 2012, with the specific aims of enhancing and supporting school assessment activities. Each project director will make a presentation on their project success during spring semester 2013.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
