Assessment and Educational Effectiveness

Vision and Mission of Assessment

Assessment initiatives at Saint Mary’s College are designed to enhance student educational experiences driven by the core mission of the College - Liberal Arts, Lasallian, and Catholic values. To meet this goal, assessment practices are intentionally designed to focus on actionable results that aim at student-centered pedagogical innovation and curriculum enhancement within a program, in relation to co-curricular programs, and across programs. The Office of Assessment and Educational Effectiveness provides a tool and method to identify the strengths and the areas of improvement in our lifelong pursuit of teaching and learning as Lasallian educators.
