What other information can I reference to learn more about assessment?

There are a tremendous amount of assessment resources both at Ohio State and from other universities, organizations and institutions. We hope this sampling of them will help your understanding of the assessment process and facilitate your work.

A number of offices and projects at Ohio State address and support assessment activities.

Several higher education organizations and clearinghouse sites provide information about assessment and best practices.

Other universities display assessment information, helping to make the process and outcomes more transparent.  

Numerous books and reference materials on assessment are readily available.
