Academic Assessment

Concordia College is committed to providing students with high-quality learning experiences. We seek to determine the extent that each student who graduates from Concordia has achieved the Goals for Liberal Learning and is prepared to carry out the mission of the college.

You will be invited to participate in various assessment activities that are designed to measure your learning and development. For example, you may be invited to complete standardized exams, respond to surveys, develop a portfolio of your work, or attend focus group discussions. Many assessment activities measure students’ progress from the first year to the fourth year. This enables us to demonstrate how much your knowledge and skills have developed during your four years at Concordia College. In many cases, we will share with you the results of assessment activities in which you participate. Awareness of your own capabilities is important for success both in college and after graduation.

Assessment activities are intended to provide useful information to faculty, staff and administrators. The college is committed to using results of assessment activities to improve programs and services. We want to ensure that we provide you (and future Cobbers) with a quality education.
