Institutional Effectiveness

Institutional Effectiveness

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness encourages continuous assessment and improvement of academic programs, student support offices, and administrative services by providing leadership and actively participating in the strategic planning and evaluation processes for the University.

 

Program & Department IE Reports

Francis Marion University’s programs and departments are engaged in continuous improvement.  They are committed to a collaborative-process that involves the review of departmental Institutional Effectiveness (IE) reports by the university IE committee.  The main components of an IE report include revisiting and revising (i.) mission statement, (ii.) program outcomes, (iii.) student learning outcomes (SLOs), (iv.) assessment of SLOs, (v.) analysis of SLO results, and (vi.) planned improvements based on these results.

National Survey of Student Engagement

According to the National Survey of Student Engagement Survey (NSSE), the survey “… reflect behaviors by students and institutions that are associated with desired outcomes of college.
