Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning. It involves making our expectations explicit and public; setting appropriate criteria and high standards for learning quality; systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards; and using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance.

Mission of the Office of Academic Assessment
The Assessment Office is dedicated to supporting Brenau University’s commitment to educational excellence. It is our mission, with input from all units of the university, to assist the institution in demonstrating the quality and effectiveness of its programs and services in support of the institutional mission, by means of a broad based and institutionally supported system of evaluation, documentation
and use of results for improvement.
