Survey of Assessment Culture

The Survey of Assessment Culture is meant to spark dialogue into the state of assessment culture in America and to provide an empirical foundation on factors influencing assessment culture with the eventual goal of increasing institutional capacities to develop, maintain, or augment their culture of assessment. The Survey of Assessment Culture serves as a framework for initiating a dialogue into what a culture of assessment looks like, why it exists, and how it changes.  The Survey also highlights similarities and uniqueness between higher education faculty and administrators' perspectives on assessment.  Visit our Research page to see works published or presented using these data.
