Outcomes Assessment at Mercer
Outcomes assessment is an iterative model for improving the programs and processes through which we carry out our mission and implement strategic planning. Outcomes assessment at Mercer is tied to the institutional mission, is comprehensive of all college operations, uses multiple sources and types of evidence, and involves faculty and staff throughout the institution. Assessment is also tied to budgeting directly and indirectly via the strategic planning process. One of the most important components of good institutional assessment is the "closing of the loop." Information gleaned from assessment is used to improve programs and processes at the College. This aspect of assessment is becoming more important at Mercer as the culture of assessment becomes more and more a part of college operations.
