Assessment is...

"... an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning. It involves making our expectations explicit and public; setting appropriate criteria and standards for learning quality; systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards; and using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance. When it is embedded effectively within larger institutional systems, assessment can help us focus our collective attention, examine our assumptions, and create a shared academic culture dedicated to assuring and improving the quality of higher education."

- Angelo (1995)

"... the systemic collection, review, and use of information about educational programs undertaken for the purpose of improving student learning and development."

- Palomba & Banta (1999)

"... rich conversation about student learning informed by data."

- Ted Marchese (n.d)
