Assessment and Evaluation

Assessment is a continuous, systematic process of collecting, reflecting upon, and utilizing information gathered from multiple data-collection techniques, focused on the improvement of student learning and development (Angelo, 1995; Ewell, 2000; Marchese, 1993; Palomba, 1999; Pellegrino, Chudowsky, & Glaser, 2001), which entails the mastery of student learning outcomes.In the case of academic advising, assessment involves a broader overall view of the academic advising program and services, primarily in regard to student learning outcomes (Robbins, 2011).
