Welcome to the Assessment Website for Saint Peter’s University. The purpose of this site is to act as an electronic repository for information, resources and tools related to assessment at the university. This site defines assessment and its process at Saint Peter’s. It also offers internal and external sources that can assist individuals, departments and institutional units at the university with their assessment dialogue.
Assessment is a comprehensive and systematic process of gathering and analyzing information through multiple measures and methods for the intentional purpose of incorporating the results into the improvement of services and programs that achieve our mission. Assessment occurs in two complementary activities: assessment of student learning (guided by the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Team or SLOAT) and of institutional effectiveness (guided by the Improving Through Methodical Practices to Change and Transform Committee or IMPACT).
Assessment at Saint Peter’s University is perceived as integral to the rhetorical tradition of teaching and learning, testing ideas and the evolution of knowledge. Saint Peter’s is fully committed to the dialogue of assessment as it renews our Jesuit past, informs our current mission and engages the university in its goal of service to others.
