The Assessment Office coordinates the scheduling and administration of university required assessments and surveys, and then distributes those results to federal, state and local decision makers

College students across the nation take general education assessments, major field exams and satisfaction/engagement surveys so that institutions of higher education can demonstrate program effectiveness, identify areas for curriculum improvement, and build programming that engages students in the greater world community as well as their chosen academic discipline.

Northwest reports the results of these assessments and surveys to the Missouri Coordinating Board of Higher Education, the Departments of Secondary and Elementary Education, and to accrediting agencies including the North Central Association of the Higher Learning Commission and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Northwest faculty and staff use results to evaluate and improve the quality of general education, major field and, co-curricular programs.
