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.  Please submit your annual report using the Program Assessment Report Template.  Reports are due Oct. 15 each year and should be uploaded using the Assessment Report Submission in Qualtrics.

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