Assessment is a mission-critical process that calls for alignment of resources and activities toward intended outcomes as defined in the Standards of Accreditation.

Through workshops and other resources, ATS supports those coordinating the assessment of student learning on an ongoing basis and in preparation for comprehensive evaluations by the Commission on Accrediting.
