Welcome to Assessment Resources and Information

Assessment is essential to student learning through academic programs by measuring and implementing continuous improvements. The Assessment Committee provides support to establish learning outcomes by measures, observing, and documenting the results of the outcomes, findings, improvements, and plans.

The following are the areas in which we review and provide guidance and support. Our focus is to ensure NTU's Strategic Priority on Academic Excellence. NTU commits to academic excellence and is engaged in an ongoing process of meeting it's mission by employing a comprehensive system of teaching, research, service, leadership, and educational support based on the Diné Philosophy of Education.
