  • Forced all of our bodies to get together. Generated research. We need the data to understand what’s going on. Transparent. data process that others can critique.

  • Senate should take the initiative in integrating everything together with one voice.

  • Established a culture of data-driven self-assessment.


  • We can go back and make correction based on data. Formative evaluation.

  • Student learning and data.

  • Documentation of program review. School dinged because budget should be driven by SLOs but not documentation

  • Data. Questions you asked are part of the research design. Are the questions good.

  • Direct connection to planning. All of the areas need to be connected to the master plan. Lack of integrate planning can cause problems that are addressed by BSI+


  • Data need to be both quantitative and qualitative. Critical questions need to have both.

  • Time constraints and personnel problems make it hard to get all the information. Here is one thing we are going to take across the board and to use as a model.

  • Dialogue is crucial to the overarching planning for the success of the three initiatives.
