The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) require institutions to maintain a practice of regular program review including reporting on program level assessment and continuous improvement.  In order to meet this requirement, programs at SIU submit an assessment plan every four years.  One of these plans is included with the program self-study.

Academic degree programs are required to develop and implement a Program Level Assessment Plan.  Programs are required to submit an Assessment Plan every four (4) years.  The Plan is due October 15th of the reporting year.

The goal of creating an assessment plan is to provide the roadmap for the process of continuous improvement.  The timeline for assessment, the assessment tools used, the benchmarks for meeting student learning outcomes, and the constituencies involved are charted in order to guide continuous improvement.  

The SIUC assessment plan is required of all programs since it provides a record of planning for assessment and continuous improvement.
