The Office of Student Affairs is committed to the use of assessment tools to gauge and enhance the service we provide to UAA students. Evaluation of our programs allows us to discover the degree to which our efforts are achieving their intended outcome(s). Furthermore, assessment also provides a means for us to hold ourselves and our colleagues accountable for the impact we have on students.
The primary purpose of the Student Affairs Assessment site is to increase our individual and collective ability to conduct assessment surveys and evaluations. Additionally, this site will also provide resources to increase your confidence in assessment, implement an assessment plan from start to finish, and report the findings of your assessment projects.

Prioritization Prep Sessions with the A-Team
Throughout the month of November, the A-Team hosted a series of Prioritization Prep Sessions designed to provide Student Affairs staff an opportunity to start getting organized for Prioritization. At each session the A-Team was available to help brainstorm and discuss with departments strategies for approaching the template questions, identify information and metrics that can assist in completing the template, and answer questions about the process.
The A-Team is pleased to see so many staff members getting engaged with this important process; 58 attendees in total engaged in productive conversations at these sessions! From the brainstorming that occurred at those sessions, the A-Team compiled this list of resources for you to consider and reflect on while gathering information for your function(s). The A-Team encourages you to keep the conversation going in preparing these resources and to be reminded that your “prioritization prepper” is available to you as an external eye and resource for support as you continue forward.
