Office of Academic Assessment
The Office of Academic Assessment, a part of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Student Success, provides leadership and coordination for assessment activities college-wide. Initiatives include outcomes-based academic program review, annual planning, and evaluation of instructional programs, general education core competency assessment, and a wide variety of student learning outcomes assessment activities.
The focus of academic assessment is on continuous improvement of student learning outcomes and includes the review of all academic programs that award a degree or certificate as well as classroom-based assessment and research. The Office of Assessment serves as a resource for faculty and staff engaged in program review and assessment activities and research.
Sharon Karkehabadi is the Associate Vice President for Assessment and provides college-wide leadership and support for academic assessment at NOVA.
