Assessment Schedules

Assessment schedules at the University of Portland coincide with regular accreditation and review efforts across campus.

In addition to the university itself, the professional schools and several programs within the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) are accredited by external agencies. Consequently, assessment review has been organized so that all outcomes are measured and the data is used for improvement within a given accreditation cycle.

Since the College of Arts & Sciences does not maintain a separate accreditation from an external agency the way the professional schools do, individual departments within the college review their overall assessment procedures on a seven-year cycle as part of a larger self-study that includes feedback from an external reviewer.

Additionally, the university-wide assessments of the Core Curriculum and Writing in the Discipline are also conducted according to an established schedule as part of a comprehensive review.
