Assessment plan development, implementation and improvement are ongoing processes. Continue working to develop a complete assessment plan and
begin the implementation of your plan with the collection of student learning outcome data, if you have not done so to this point. For additional assistance
on improving your plan contact the FaCET office to schedule an appointment, before the end of the semester, with the Assessment Fellow – Dr. Drew
Bergerson. For assessment consulting appointments, contact Riley Powell, FaCET Research and Administrative Assistant via email at powellrd@umkc.edu or
Deborah Smith, FaCET Acting Director at 816-235-5362.
