Annual outcomes assessment

Annual planning and assessment is the cornerstone of the College’s systematic process of ensuring effectiveness and fostering continuous, incremental improvement in all areas at Morehouse. Academic, student support, and administrative units identify expected outcomes, assess the extent to which they achieve those outcomes, and provide evidence of improvement based on analysis of the results. To facilitate this process, programs and units should use the resources provided below.
