The Faculty Senate Committee for the Assessment of Student Learning provides guidance for programs in terms of assessment plans, assessment reporting and the selection of university wide assessment instruments. At UW Oshkosh, assessment takes place at the course, program and university levels to determine if students are meeting the university learning outcomes. Assessment results are shared in the Oshkosh Student Achievement Report designed to communicate the results of the many campus assessments. The committee adopted the following definition of assessment, a systematic means of ascertaining the fit between our expectations (what we intend) and students’ actual achievement of those expectations. The assessment process is guided by and anchored in intellectual curiosity about the collective efficacy of our educational practices. Peggy Maki, 2009
