For academic units, the most important component of institutional effectiveness is the annual student learning outcomes assessment process. For each academic program, three to five intended learning outcomes are identified and measured annually and the results considered for program improvement.

Administrative and educational support units are expected to demonstrate and document an annual process selecting services and/or work processes for review, deciding on a desired level of performance, assessing to determine the actual level of performance, and using of results to improve services and unit performance.

For purposes of documenting the annual assessment processes in the academic, educational support, and administrative units, USF has adopted a set of forms designed by Dr. James O. Nichols, Institutional Effectiveness Associates, Inc.
