3.3.1 The institution identifies expected outcomes for its educational programs and its administrative and education support services; assesses whether it achieves these outcomes; and provides evidence of improvement based on analysis of those results.

“When viewed from the perspective of having a mature, fully integrated outcomes assessment program for its education programs, it appears that the institution is at the very beginning stagesof integrating outcomes assessment fully into the culture of the institution.” SACS Reaffirmation of Accreditation 2004 Offsite Report
“…documentation of the use of results to improve programs is systematically limited throughout the supporting documentation…few strategies for improvement based on direct measures of student learning are documented. Document how programs use assessment results from direct measures of student learning for the improvement of educational programs.” SACS July 2011
“Although evidence is provided for changes in academic programs, the institution does not demonstrate across its academic programs that these changes are based on assessment results from direct measures of student learning” SACS July 2012
