Assessment of student learning of Ball State University's academic programs is an essential means of identifying areas for growth and improvement in those programs. Therefore, Ball State colleges, departments, and schools engage in annual programmatic assessment.

Program assessment is rooted in a philosophy of continual improvement of our learning environments.
