The College of Engineering is actively engaged in a continuous improvement process of planning, measurement, evaluation, and feedback. This work is aided by the College's Strategic Planning and Assessment Resource Team (SPART), which is comprised of a faculty member from each department. Additional support is provided by faculty associates, who assist with collecting data and summarizing, reporting, and interpreting results.
SPART members work with faculty within their respective department to determine assessment needs, identify specific measures, develop assessment tools, review and interpret results, and then implement improvement strategies. SPART also provides the infrastructure necessary for an effective continuous improvement process. This includes tools, databases, and planning and assessment expertise that are available to the College and departments. SPART disseminates results at the Assessment and Improvement Meeting (AIM) held each fall, spring, and summer.
