Learning Assessment Team

The Learning Assessment Team (LAT), formed in 2009, aims to strengthen outcomes assessment across the campus. The LAT reviews all major assessment reports on an annual basis. In 2015 and 2016, the coordinator of this team communicated with departments regarding their reports. Members also provide an overview of the status of  programs' assessment to the Deans and Provost and departments on the status of programs' assessment. The first annual assessment conference was held in February 2016 and the LAT will be involved in the planning and implementation of subsequent assessment conferences at Fresno State.
