Outcomes and Institutional Effectiveness

Institutional Effectiveness is the process in which Florida State University assesses continuing improvement of the university. These guidelines govern the university’s conduct of institutional effectiveness and establishes the methods by which the university assesses performance against its mission. It includes using performance in pursuit of the institution’s mission and goals, as well as the development, implementation, review, and assessment of student learning and program outcomes for the university’s educational programs, academic support, administrative support and student support services and infrastructure.

The institution identifies expected outcomes, assesses the extent to which it achieves these outcomes, and provides evidence of seeking improvement based on analysis of the results for student learning outcomes for each of its educational programs and program outcomes for each of its different types of program outcomes.
