Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes
Mission: The mission of assessment is to promote excellence in student learning and educational practices by fostering a campus culture of continuous improvement. These efforts support CSM's mission in educating students related to:
- The discovery and recovery of the Earth's resources,
- Their conversion to materials and energy,
- Their utilization in advanced processes and products, and
- The economic and social systems necessary to ensure their prudent and provident use in a sustainable global society.
Assessment of student learning outcomes will enable us to demonstrate how effectively we are achieving the goals articulated in the Profile of the Colorado School of Mines Graduate.
“An effective assessment program should spend more time and money on using data than on gathering it…providing support for making changes in response to the evidence.”
