Online Assessment Tracking Database (OATDB) Archive

Sam Houston State University (SHSU) documents assessment information in the campus's online assessment management system. From 2006-2007 through the 2014-2015 assessment cycle, SHSU used the Online Assessment Tracking Database (OATDB), a locally-developed assessment management system, to document each unit's assessment plans. This site serves as an archive of the assessment plans for those years: OATDB Archive
