Evaluation and Assessment

The mission of University of California at Riverside’s Office of Evaluation and Assessment is to facilitate a culture of data-driven decision making and continuous educational improvement. To that end, we design and conduct studies on the effectiveness of UCR’s undergraduate academic support programs. We also advise faculty and administrators on all aspects of the assessment process from writing learning objectives to implementing results. We provide support for iEval, the campus' online student evaluation of teaching system. Further, we provide assistance on an ad hoc basis to faculty needing help with grant proposals and other projects that have an evaluation or assessment component. Finally, we offer writing, research, and organizational support for UCR’s WASC accreditation activities. The Office of Evaluation and Assessment seeks to initiate and support data driven conversations focused on undergraduate student success. 

Upcoming Events:

Annual assessment reports for AY16-17 are due June 30, 2017.
