Assessment Tools and Course Evaluations
Faculty at Butler understand that helping our students learn is
a continual process, requiring a commitment to assessment and
evaluation. One means of our continued focus in enhancing student
learning is our annual academic assessment and the considered
conversations by departments, programs, and colleges. Another means
is the feedback we seek from students.
Student learning outcomes for
departments and programs: Each department and program completes
an annual assessment and revision of their student learning
Evaluation: Provides the University a consistent means of
evaluating courses and faculty, with a dual focus on evaluative and
Butler faculty complete an annual
Faculty Activity Report to document their accomplishments in
teaching, research, scholarships, and creative work, and
service/leadership to the campus and community.
