Primary programmatic assessment assistanceJosh Kuntzman
The Council on Assessment (CoA) is appointed by the Executive Vice Chancellor and serves as a peer review authority (modeled after the Program Review Panel) and works in collaboration with, but is independent of, the Academic Senate. The CoA is comprised of faculty from across the university and chaired by the WASC ALO/Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education, CITRAL Faculty Director and Writing Program Professor, Dr. Linda Adler-Kassner.  The CoA reviews, provides feedback on, and ultimately approves departmental program learning outcome assessment plans. The CoA also reviews and approves Assessment Research Grant Proposals and revisions to program learning outcomes (PLOs).
