Program-Level Assessment

Unlike some other colleges, assessment at Columbia is not handled through a college-wide or school-specific committee. Our departments cover a broad range of topics, from theatre to filmmaking to education, and so assessment takes place at the level of the program. We in the Evaluation & Asessment office have a consultative relationship with the departmental assessment coordinators to develop assessment methods that are suitable for each individual program. The assessment coordinators deliver short annual reports on the results of assessing their department's learning outcomes. Click here for an outline of the report.
