A look at the method and outcomes of student affairs assessments: Editorials


Two recent articles in touch on the way assessments can be used to improve student affairs departments. Daniel Bureau (Louisiana State University) describes assessment as a “framework [“¦] to continually ask how we can do better” and become more effective as a department. He recommends taking the time to define and prioritize the most important outcomes for the assessment and encourages a process that involves working with other units and drawing on assessment practices from other sectors. Erin Milne (Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts) and Jeannette Smith (MCLA) offer their college as a case study in student affairs assessment and discuss the high-impact processes that have been implemented as a result of assessment practices.
