Assessment at Miami University
Assessment at Miami University is designed around the idea of full-cycle assessment. Rather than viewing assessment as a one-time project to be completed, full-cycle assessment regards assessment as a continuous cycle, in which the information gathered is used to redesign courses and programs in order to enhance student learning and development.
