Planning and Reporting

Annual Process 

At Marian University, our program-level assessment planning and reporting process seeks to be:

  • Meaningful. The process is focused on promoting data use among curricular and co-curricular programs rather than just reporting to meet accreditation needs.
  • Authentic. The Teaching & Learning Committee (TLC) strives to foster genuine and supportive relationships with and between programs across campus.
  • Reasonable. The process places realistic and fair expectations on programs, faculty, and staff.
  • Inclusive. TLC recognizes that all faculty and staff are educators and make important contributions to student learning.
  • Appreciative. The process emphasizes the strengths and accomplishments of programs and focuses on what could help moving forward.
  • Nimble. TLC intends to respond to program needs and make appropriate improvements to the process based on program feedback.


3.5 Year Self-Study Process

The self-study process builds on the strengths of the annual program-level assessment planning and reporting process and seeks to: (a) encourage programs to implement ongoing evaluation, planning, and decision-making that will improve program outcomes, quality, and student retention rates; (b) document program strengths and identify opportunities for improvement, using data-supported justification for specific needs for institutional resources; and (c) facilitate evaluation and alignment of program needs and outcomes with the University’s mission, institutional learning outcomes, learning experience framework, and strategic plan.
