Institutional Effectiveness

  • It is the “systematic, explicit, and documented process of measuring performance against mission in all aspects of an institution….”

  • “A commitment to continuous improvement is at the heart of an ongoing planning and evaluation process. It is a continuous, cyclical process that is participative, flexible, relevant, and responsive.”

    Resource Manual, SACSCOC (Revised 2012)

Institutional Effectiveness

    • Narrative describing improvements made as a result of assessment (Plan Updates)

    • Annual Reports

    • President’s Report

  • Chart/Calendar of Process

  • Evidence of linkage to budgeting


Institutional Effectiveness

  • Ongoing (provide evidence of functioning, such as documentation of goal-setting, assessment, an use of results)

  • Integrated (provide evidence that all unites are integrated in the planning and evaluation processes---especially that the budgeting process is integrated with planning by all other units)

  • Institution-Wide (provide evidence that all units at the institution participate in planning and evaluation processes)

  • Research-Based (provide evidence that the planning and assessment processes are supported by research)


Institutional Effectiveness - Comprehensive Standard 3.3.1

  • The institution identifies expected outcomes, assesses the extent to which it achieves these outcomes, and provides evidence of improvement based on analysis of the results in each of the following areas:

  • 3.3.1.1 educational programs, to include student learning outcomes

  • 3.3.1.2 administrative support services

  • 3.3.1.3 academic and student support services

  • 3.3.1.4 research within its mission, if appropriate

  • 3.3.1.5 community/public service within its mission, if appropriate


Institutional Effectiveness – Requirements for 3.3.1

  • Learning outcomes assessment

    • Identify student learning outcomes for programs

    • Identify assessment means/methods

    • Conduct the assessment

    • Analyze the assessment results

    • Use the assessment results for improvement


Institutional Effectiveness

How can we present what we are doing so that peer evaluators will see that we are in compliance with 3.3.1?

Matrix or table clearly identifying the outcome, the “target,” the means of assessment, and the use of assessment is one way.
