The Office of Institutional Assessment

The Office of Institutional Assessment (OIA) will serve the vital function of overall coordination for Institutional assessment projects at USF. The OIA reports directly to the Vice Provost. In response to the strategic priorities set by the USF Leadership Team, WASC accreditation standards, and the needs of the schools the OIA directs assessment activities within four main areas: institutional strategic goals, program/service quality and effectiveness, the student/alumni experience, and student learning. The OIA will take responsibility for informing other divisions of the University of the results and implications of the various assessment projects.

In addition the OIA will assist faculty, staff and administrators in planning, designing, implementing, analyzing and reporting University-wide or more targeted assessment efforts. These responsibilities include inter alia, planning, locating or developing tools to met assessment needs; offering opportunities for faculty and staff to learn and share assessment methods; assisting University offices and its leadership in ensuring that assessment results are used effectively for program improvement; and, producing periodic reports on the results of assessment efforts. In addition to contributing to university-wide assessment efforts, the Director will support schools/colleges or departments in their disciplinary accreditation and other department-based evaluation needs and interact with appropriate members of the University community.
