Assessing student learning is a difficult process, but necessary to set the framework of a program and assess whether learning took place. Creating a holistic picture of campus assessment data can be cumbersome especially in institutions where assessment in student affairs and academic areas is localized with results reported solely to the individual campus silos. The University of South Dakota implemented strategies to improve the assessment process across campus as a result of implementing tracking software. In addition, program review informs strategic planning and closes the loop on assessment of student learning. The program review process was modified in academic affairs, and for student services areas, CAS standards templates were incorporated into the software. Access to assessment data is now provided to stakeholders at multiple levels across campus. This session is a case study of how a public flagship university developed a systematic, holistic process for assessing student learning.
