An effective assessment system is the secret sauce of continuous quality improvement that informs budgeting and strategic planning. It’s simply indispensable for institutional excellence. Learn from distinguished leaders across higher education how you can build effective assessment into the warp and weave of your institution. Help your institution effectively assess what’s important and lead your institution toward excellence.
