The assessment of student outcomes at UNK is viewed as a formative process that enables faculty and staff to use results to focus on enhancement of teaching and improvement of student performance. The Assessment Program at UNK focuses on the need for development and utilization of assessment of student outcomes in a systematic and continuous manner. Faculty ownership of the assessment process is the overall goal for successful implementation and utilization of assessment data at UNK.

The SVCASA has the responsibility for oversight of assessment at UNK. This includes the development of a strategic assessment plan and the supervision of the work of the Assessment Office. The Director of Assessment works closely with the SVCASA and college deans on assessment planning and with Department Chairs and faculty on implementation. The Assessment Office oversees two committees - the Assessment Committee and the Student Assessment Committee - which provide guidance and oversight in meeting the goals of the assessment program at UNK.
