Annual Administrative Evaluation

The goal of annual administrative planning and evaluation is for departments to gather evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of their services. Depending on their mission, some may include learning outcomes, but generally, most outcomes will be process- or satisfaction-focused.

Each October, administrative departments submit an annual plan for the outcomes they intend to measure in the coming year. When developing an annual plan, departments should work with their vice president (Academic Affairs, Advancement, Athletics, Business Affairs, Communications, Enrollment Management, General Counsel, Information Services, Planning and Policy, or Student Development) to ensure that the plan aligns with division-wide initiatives or goals. Evaluation plans of the units will be submitted by a designated person on the divisional-level. The Assessment Specialist will review evaluation plans and work with departments, as needed, to refine them.

In July, an evaluation report summarizing the results from the previous year should be submitted. At the same time, several questions regarding improvement must be submitted to ensure that all departments are continually improving operations to meet their missions.

Taskstream Accountability Management System (AMS) houses the published evaluation plans and reports submitted by administrative units for 2008-2009 through 2021-2022. Since 2022-2023, all plans and reports are located in Planning and Self-Study (PSS). For most units, department heads have view and edit access to the respective programs workspace but may designate other individuals to submit the plans and reports.
