Each year, changes are made to the assessment process. Below is a list of changes made between 2011 and 2016.
Assessment information and tracking were taking place in the institution’s LMS, Moodle, which was inefficient and largely un-used by faculty. In the summer of 2011, faculty evaluated several outcomes based applications and settled on Taskstream. The use of Taskstream was implemented in fall 2011.
