Everyone at McNeese is responsible for contributing to the assessment process. The Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness (IRE) coordinates the assessment process and communicates results to the campus on an ongoing basis. Assessment begins with faculty and staff determining the goals and objectives of their units and academic programs. Academic program coordinators, department heads, and supervisors must oversee the assessment process and ensure that reports are submitted in a timely manner. Assessment reports will be reviewed and approved by everyone in the division up to and including the respective vice president. These individuals must also act on reasonable recommendations provided in these assessment reports in an effort toward continuous improvement.

Academic Program Assessment

Academic program assessment requires faculty to determine appropriate student learning outcomes at the program and course levels. Individual assignments and exams that demonstrate student learning are examples of appropriate academic assessments. End of term course grades are not appropriate assessments of student learning. Faculty should keep assessment data and student artifacts for a period of at least three years. At the end of each semester, faculty should submit student learning data to the academic program coordinator and department head for inclusion in the assessment report. Programs that are offered both face-to-face and through distance learning should disaggregate all assessment data between students in the face-to-face program and students in the online program.

Annual academic program assessment reports should be completed in the Xitracs Portal the Friday before Spring commencement exercises. Upon review and approval by all department heads, deans, and the provost and vice president for academic affairs and enrollment management, IRE will post the reports on this webpage.

Unit Assessment

Unit assessment requires academic department heads and unit heads to determine appropriate performance objectives. These objectives should relate directly to the institutional mission as well as the mission of the respective unit.

Annual unit assessment reports for both academic and non-academic units for the previous year should be completed in the Xitracs Portal by July 15. Upon review and approval by the appropriate supervisor(s) and vice president, IRE will post the reports on this webpage.

Instructions for Xitracs

Please refer to the Xitracs Portal Instructions when updating your assessment report. Should you have questions or need assistance, please contact Wesley LeJeune at wlejeune1@mcneese.edu.
