Collecting/Analyzing Data and Fostering Dialogue

Once an assessment is complete, the next step is to collect and analyze the data. Since the goal of assessment is improvement at the course and program level, not evaluation of individual faculty members, it is recommended that assessment data be reported to the department at the course level (as opposed to the section level).

If there is only one section of a course taught each semester, a department may want to collect several semesters worth of data before combining it at the course level for reflection and action planning.
