EIU Assessment

Assessment at EIU

The primary purpose of assessment is to improve student learning. At Eastern Illinois University, assessment occurs on two levels:

  • At the university-wide level, where it focuses on the abilities, attitudes and behaviors that the sum of students' experiences at EIU have imparted and/or reinforced.
  • At the department level, where such learning continues, complemented by content knowledge in a discipline.

The Vice President for Academic Affairs established the University Committee for the Assessment of Student Learning (CASL) to develop and oversee university-wide policies and plans on the assessment of student learning. CASL developed a program to assess the undergraduate learning goals:

Critical Thinking
EIU graduates question, examine, evaluate, and respond to problems or arguments.

Writing and Critical Reading
EIU graduates write critically and evaluate varied sources.

Speaking and Listening
EIU graduates prepare, deliver, and critically evaluate presentations and other formal speaking activities.

Quantitative Reasoning
EIU graduates produce, analyze, interpret, and evaluate material.

Responsible Citizenship
EIU graduates make informed decisions based on knowledge of the physical and natural world and human history and culture.
