ACE Assessment

ACE Governing Document IV established a process to recertify and assess ACE courses on a five-year rotating basis.  The ACE department assessment report summarizes the collected assessment information for each of the ACE outcomes for which the department has courses. The department submits one summary assessment report for each outcome to the college for feedback.  Those department assessment reports are then collected by the University-Wide Assessment Committee (UWAC) for creation of an institutional ACE assessment report.

Assessment Through Tk20


Tk20 is a comprehensive assessment management system that provides a rich set of tools for faculty that will help track and enhance students' learning, as well as making ACE course assessment easier. We are currently piloting this new software and are preparing to launch University-wide in the Fall of 2016.

You can find more information about this assessment tool here. If you have any questions regarding this new system  please contact the Tk20 Unit Administrators.
