Outcomes Assessment

The assessment program at Missouri State University-West Plains is designed to assist in the development and maintenance of high quality programs and services. The information gathered in this process is used by University administrators, division chairs, faculty, and staff to evaluate and improve both academic and non-academic offerings. Because the success of this program requires widespread cooperation from the entire university community, it is the policy of Missouri State University-West Plains that all students are expected to participate in the assessment process, including taking an exit examination which is required of all graduating students. This participation may include, but not be limited to, assessment activities focused on basic skills, general education, major programs, and surveys of student satisfaction.
