FAMU Assessment Philosophy

FAMU's Assessment Philosophy

The philosophy of assessment at FAMU is "to foster a culture of continuous improvement of program offerings and support services to ensure student success and institutional effectiveness.” Assessment is grounded in the institutional values set forth in the mission statement and focuses primarily on improving student learning both within and outside the classroom. Our approach is rooted in a comprehensive and collaborative process that utilizes data to improve the overall student experience.

FAMU defines assessment as “a systematic process of gathering, analyzing, interpreting and documenting the effectiveness of the teaching and learning processes to ensure that expectations and standards are met in fulfilling the mission of the university.  The process also includes monitoring and enhancing the administrative and educational support structure of the university that leads to the continuous improvement of FAMU’s academic programs and administrative and educational support services.”
