office of the provost + academic affairs assessment

Lawrence Tech is a student-centered, comprehensive, teaching university with focused, technologically oriented professional programs. As a student-centered university, we have developed both undergraduate and graduate educational goals in three critical areas:

  1. Discipline-specific knowledge
  2. Critical thinking
  3. Leadership and ethics

A University Assessment Committee comprised of a Director of Assessment, faculty representatives from each academic department, the Associate Provost, and the Director of Institutional Research have the primary responsibility of assessing student educational outcomes. The Assessment Committee has developed a detailed plan and process for assessing learning outcomes of Lawrence Tech students for all educational goals. Some of these goals are measured using University-wide processes, others are measured by departments, and some are measured by both University and departments.

In addition to annual assessment plans and reports submitted by all academic departments, the University engages in a range of student surveys that yield indirect assessment measures for consideration by the Assessment Committee. The major surveys used at Lawrence Tech are the National Survey of Student Engagement (scheduled to be administered in the spring semesters of 2014, 2017, and 2020), the Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Survey (last scheduled to be administered in the spring semester of 2013), a graduating student survey administered by the Provost's Office, and a post-graduation employment survey administered by the Office of Career Services.

University Assessment Reports

All academic departments submit annual assessment reports to the University Assessment Committee. The academic year reports are filed in the following fall semester. These reports are reviewed by the Assessment Committee and are also discussed with the Dean, Department Chair, Director of Assessment, and Associate Provost at a special review meeting. Annual assessment reports are posted to this web page in the following spring semester.
