When successfully incorporated into our processes at the program, college, and institutional level, assessment can help us create a shared culture dedicated to assuring and improving student learning and success. The tool selected by Purdue for collecting and managing the evidence of our assessment efforts is TracDat. TracDat by itself is not assessment; its sole purpose is to assist us in organizing and managing the process of assessment. Data that you enter into the TracDat database is reviewed by the Office of the Provost, which monitors student learning outcomes (SLOs) outcomes for the whole campus for internal and external reports to the university president, Board of Trustees, and regional accrediting agencies.
