Assessment at the University of Portland is about continuous improvement.  By measuring how well we are fulfilling our various program, department, college, and university goals, UP is able to identify where our current strengths are along with areas in which we want to grow.

The Office of Institutional Research supports assessment efforts across campus in a number of ways. Using the links below, you can navigate to a variety of assessment tools, including ones designed for use here at UP as well as external resources designed for other institutions.  You can also request that the IR Office consult with your program to focus on improving assessment practices.
