Annual Planning and Evaluation Process

Annual Planning and Evaluation Process

Administrative and Campus units determine expected outcomes, which are mapped to NOVA’s Strategic Plan. Units then measure their achievement in meeting these outcomes using evaluation measures that are aligned with their expected outcomes. Evaluation data are disaggregated, analyzed, and compared with previous years’ outcomes. This analysis determines improvements to be addressed in the next evaluation cycle. The cyclical nature of this planning and evaluation process is shown in the figure below.
