                    (Angelo, 1995)
Assessment versus Research versus
Evaluation

   Assessment
       Any effort to gather, analyze, and interpret evidence which
        describes program effectiveness.
   Research
       Any effort to gather evidence, which guided by theory and
        testing hypotheses
   Evaluation
       Any effort to use assessment evidence to improve program
        effectiveness, solve a problem, or help make a decision or
        establish a policy.


                         (Upcraft & Schuh, 1996)
Barriers to Assessment

     Difficult to coordinate
     Lack of expertise
     Results not shared, benefits not realized
     Fear of negative findings
