Abstract and Keywords
Psychology departments face increased and sustained external demands to document the assessment of student learning outcomes. Successful assessment programs use assessment to identify areas where implementing strategic modifications promises to improve student learning. These departments use evidence to inform faculty conversations about curriculum, teaching, and learning. These discussions prompt evidence-based decisions to implement changes to enhance the quality of student learning. This chapter describes the internal and external drivers for assessment and accountability, presents an introduction to the assessment process, and describes strategies and best practices in assessment, with a focus on practical strategies for assessing student learning and program effectiveness in psychology.
