Academic Enhancement integrates rigorous formative and summative assessment practices into all areas of operation and programmatic implementation. The various types of data collected and generated are analyzed on a regular schedule, as outlined in the cyclical AE Assessment Plan[PDF]. Both data collection and analysis are valued as meaningful processes and are integrated into daily operations of all programs and services so that assessment can maximize efficacy without impacting efficiency. All analysis is intentional and integral to the operation of all programs and services.
