QEP Oversight Committee Goals and Timeline

Summative Evaluation of the Goals for the QEP

Throughout the QEP cycle, we will gather data for use in our final assessment and evaluation, which will summarize trends emerging from the five years of the project’s active existence. We will aim to answer the three questions in our final report:

  • What did we do?
  • Did the QEP increase student learning in the area of communication?
  • Did the QEP result in improvements, including increases in student learning, that helped to accomplish the mission of the university?
