Assessment, according to Linda Suskie, is “the ongoing process of establishing clear,
measurable expected outcomes of student learning; ensuring that students have sufficient
opportunities to achieve those outcomes; systematic gathering, analyzing, and interpreting
evidence to determine how well student learning matches our expectations; [and] using
the resulting information to understand and improve student learning.”
